As I was watching TV with my family one day, I was wanting an ottoman really bad to put my feet on. We recently moved into a small townhome, so what I needed had to fit certain dimensions of our tiny family room. Low and behold, the crate was the exact dimension I was looking for. I hopped over to my favorite store, Home Depot, and bought four legs and black gloss spray paint.
I'm so happy with the results, as long as I can keep my husband from putting his shoes on the top. This project has helped me embrace the industrial look of design in my house. I'm wondering what I can think up next.
