From Breadbox to Birdhouse Storage Table

 This little piece started life as a breadbox and an adirondak chair.  I don't have a before picture, but this was huge, homemade breadbox now tipped on its end.

I used pieces from a broken adirondak chair to make the base and the bottom shelf.  I added some legs I had, painted and distressed it, and drilled a bird hole and attached a teaspoon for a perch.

I still have to hinge it, think I will use a piano hinge on the inside.  It would make great storage for potatoes in the kitchen, towels in the bathroom, magazines or DVDs in a family room.
