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-
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.
Step 1: Step one-
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!
