Chicken coop turned coffee table

Here is another great project that my friend Kristin has done using an antique chicken coop.  In her travels to Upstate, New York, Kristin found this really fabulous chicken coop in an antique store.  Anyone else would have walked right by it and not have given it a second look, but Kristin knew exactly what the future held for this antique chicken coop. 

When she brought it home, she cleaned it up thoroughly and did any minor repairs that needed to be done.  
She installed casters on the bottom so that it is a versatile piece that can be easily moved around.  She had a glass cut to size and placed on top and viola, a unique coffee table!
 Doesn't this look fabulous?
By the way, there is a similar pigeon coop turned coffee table at Pottery Barn for almost $700.  This coffee table didn't cost a fraction of the Pottery Barn price.  Well done Kristin!

Isn't it great to give a contrasting life to an object?  Have you repurposed anything lately?  

Have a great day!
