crate love


so i went to a barn sale a few weeks ago and bought something i've been wanting for a few years...


i almost bought one at an antique store a few years back for $40 but didn't

so when i saw this cHicKen cRaTe i started clucking

then i nearly fainted when the farmer said 

"ohhhhh, i dunno...10 or 20 dollars?"


music to my ears!

so i hauled this little crate {$10} over to my van and nestled it in beside my {$30} antique white wicker chaise lounge (i know!)

i cleaned and bleached (and cleaned some more)

then i attached some wheels and wa-la...

a brand new {old} chicken crate coffee table

makes me wanna do the chicken dance

We Italians DO love a good chicken dance every now and then! Yeah for you and patience is a good virtue that paid off.......quite literally this time. :) Happy Clucking friend.
