I chose a very pretty felt that matched the rest of the decor colors, and covered the wire crate with that. We then got a good piece of butcher block, and stained it very very dark, and sealed it. This is on top of the wire crate, and acts as an end table in our living room. Most people don’t even realize it’s a crate until we let a dog in or out. Not super duper fancy, but it really does blend in with the living room as a piece of furniture. And it’s not as expensive as buying one that is built into an table.
