Here we go, fellow Instructabilians (some one add that to the dictionary), I have another "Reduce, Reuse, and Redesign'' project for you!

I originally purchased a pair of soda crates (one Pepsi, one Coca-Cola) at a flea market several years ago with the intention of making something out of them, but I never got around to it, or had any really creative ideas, until today.

What you'll need-
Soda crates
Hammer
Flat head screwdriver
Legs from an old end table (or something new from the craft store, but I prefer the salvage method, it adds more character)
A few small old looking nails


This is a very easy project that anyone can tackle. It only took me about an hour from start to Instructable.

Decide how you want your table to look. Do you want to put glass on top and fill the inside with nicnacs, or do you want to not be able to see through it?

I had wanted to make these into end tables for a while, but I couldn't settle on a way of doing it that I really liked. I stared at it for a while from many angles and I really liked the aged look of the unfinished wood on the bottom of the crate. The problem with that was, if I used the bottom as the top, then the "Coca-Cola" would be upside down.

I decided that I would take it apart and flip the side piece around, so when the bottom becomes the top, the logo would be right side up!

You're not a Hoarder *snicker,chuckle,smiling* you're a collector of fine merchandise.*LOL*

All joking aside Sir this is a very cool idea!!

Unfortunately, there are no flea market type places close by where I live...BUT, but, that has never stopped me B4 & it will not stop me now. *evil grin*

I love this table of yours! TY for sharing Sir! 80)
