This piece has been brought back to life, just yesterday by myself (Endless Acres Farmtiques). I gave the entire crate and removable lid, and interior, 2 coats of clear shellac which helped seal the wood and to bring out some of the cool historical details, like markings, writing, nail holes from where it was nailed shut each time it was used, hammer marks and more. All of the markings on this crate are original and not added by myself.
I also put it on 4 smaller caster wheels which are new wheels and move very smoothly. 2 vintage styled handles were also added to the lid so you can easily open and close it!
This is a great multi purpose crate for any space, like a living room! Tuck away your kids toys or games inside when they are not in use!
I am located in Rock Falls, Wi about 1.5 hours from St. Paul, Minnesota but am willing to deliver or meet within the Minneapolis area for no extra charge!
This is such a beautiful and unique piece that is full of history and will make a great conversation piece in any area of your home!
(Want to rent it for staging a home, please contact me, as that is an option as well! )
18.5″ deep/tall including wheels.
