My niece Andrea loves refurbished pieces. I found an old carpenter box in Dad's barn that was going to get pitched. Andrea had mentioned that she needed a table by the front door. So I told her I would make her one out of the old raggedy box. Her husband rolled his eyes at our conversation. I used a barn red stain on the box, added legs, and because there was a lip on the inside I cut a biece of barnwood to make the top. Drilled thumb hole so that you can lift the top of to get inside the box for storage.
