Side/End Table Bedside Table Made With Vintage Fish Crate

Size: W40cm x D20cm x H61cm approx.
Weight: 7Kgs.


Side/end table bedside table wall cabinet made with vintage fish crate.

I made these tables using 2 vintage fish crates from Poole, which I found in a market in need of a lot of tlc and some restoration.

I first sanded them down gently to make them clean and smooth being careful not to erase the original printing.

I then added a shelf in the inside and added 2 hinges to the crates' lids to make them function as doors and I also added a small rope handle at the front.

I kept one of the metal closing strips to use as a closing mechanism for the door while I got rid of the second one.

The crates still have their original printing at the top, on the sides and on the door, which are as follows: "CHARGED 5/" at the top, "F DIBBENS & SONS - FISH MARKET POOLE" on the side and on the door.

I think that because of their size these 2 tables would work very well not only as side/end tables but also (if 2 hooks were to be added at the back) as quirky wall cabinets.
