Thrift Store Under 50

Chicken coop found while thrift shopping

This is probably one of the easiest makeovers that I’ve ever done. It was marked $45 and I would have paid that, but I asked if the seller would take less, and they did! This old thing is now an awesome farmhouse coffee table. I shared my thrifty finds earlier, you may remember seeing this 🙂

How to make a chicken coop coffee table by Refresh Restyle

Pressure wash the coop. I sprayed it with a bleach solution and pressure washed it. It didn’t appear dirty, but never take any chances with thrifty finds.

  1. Cut and paint 2″x4″ pieces of lumber. (I did this to add some height to the table)
  2. Attach lumber to the bottom of the coop/crate
  3. Attach casters.

Tip: You could skip the casters and add furniture legs to add height also.
