    Hi everyone I repurposed an entertainment center and dog kennel it's a 12x7 kennel I put haced 6'x50' chicken wire for $43 at home Depot for the entertainment center my husband cut holes on the side and front bottom doors attached a piece of plywood in the middle on the top so I can attach doors on the top where my one coop is he cut a hope in the chicken wire and stapled it to the wood so the chickens can get in and out I also bought a 1"dowel from home Depot and drop lled holes in the sides and used a glue gun to keep it in place in the holes I also have to make a ramp for the side hole I purchased 4 4x8 sheets of plywood from home Depot cut it to size and attached it to 4x6 boards a friend gave me and I bought fencing paint from Walmart and it runs about $15 a gallon

    It is a clever repurposing of an entertainment center but the entire setup does not provide predator proof shelter.

      For me it was more of repurposing an entertainment center and a 12x7 dog kennel I used 6'x50' chicken wire I purchased 17 gague wire and wired the chicken wire to the poles if the kennel for the entertainment center my husband cut holes roughly 12" in the front doors on the side he cut roughly a 14"hole we still have to attach a ramp then he attached a piece of plywood in the top so we can attach doors to it and I purchased red fence paint from Walmart to paint the entertainment center I hope that helps thanks
