The end result. A fabulous crate, a few feet from an old desk, some foam, her fabric, and the back  of a busted old chair for a little top bling
Of course, I hinged the lid for access to the hidden bag of food.
The crate before her lovely mixed wax makeover.
The old chair top I added for a little more o la la. It fit nicely with the swirls on the fabric, but still in its rustic wood to match the base.
A little stamping on the front from the original use.
The cutie little feet.
The other side
In its new home.

A most fabulous lil lassie came into the store and I noticed her looking at a few things but didn't seem to have that AHA moment. I questioned what she was looking for and she said, something to put in my front entry, something I can sit on, but yet hide my cats food in. We sat for a few minutes looking at pieces and pondering and going over decor colours and choices. She wasn't finished the area yet, so opted for natural wood. The measurement of the space was pretty small, so most of the larger things I carry weren't working. She left it with me along with some fabric and I went on the mission. Luckily, I hoard crates! (trunks and crates are my secret obsession) I also have a fab box of cute feet stored in my attic. ( Ok, now that can sound very very weird if not used in context haha) Here is what I came up with.

I really would use this almost in any other room of my hosue as a foot stool or just a somewhere to rest my bum and not just for pet food storage. There's really too much potential for a beautiful piece of furniture like this - hard to imagine it was handmade too. It's really well done! Posted: 8:18 pm on October 6th
