Harley Davidson Crate Knock Off

Harley Davidson Crate Knock Off, fun DIY project!
This was the gift Harley was giving out around the holidays. And a friend of mine really wanted something similar for her husband for a gift.

So I purchased this crate at our local Military Surplus Store for $10! They are built strong and sturdy. And it sure don’t hurt to cheat every once in awhile and buy instead of build. Heehee.
So step one was to remove the lid by unscrewing the hinges.

 I purchased these metal brackets (lack of better word) for less than $5! And you can find them in the Door & Window Hardware isle any hardware store. 
 
I then spray painted them black. Just because I thought it would look better. LOL

This step is optional but she wanted wheels! 
Screw the casters to the bottom to make it mobile! 
 
And you’ve got yourself a personalized crate!
