Farmhouse Crate End Table

It's safe to say I am a big fan of farmhouse style, and this farmhouse crate end table is giving me life!

I have partnered up with Jennifer with MadisonMadeDecor to give you the how-to on making this awesome end table! Check her out on Instagram and give her Etsy shop a look and then get to building!

Isn't she a beauty?
