When I was staging my niece's house to sell I needed to find a budget friendly table for the entry. When I came across a chicken coop at one of my favorite second hand stores, I knew that it would make a great entry table by standing it on one end.
Why does it work?
It protrudes from the wall less than 12 inches.
It is the perfect height.
It provides visual interest.
It adds texture to the room.
It is very unique.
I love that the little door with the spring still works.
The price was right at $28 and I was able to get a piece of glass cut to fit the top for about $10. I used a mirror and lamp that I already had and added one of my wooden cigar boxes and a small vase of blooms clipped from the yard. It was quick, easy, and inexpensive. You just can’t beat instant gratification.
I was very pleased with how it turned out.
