Since I am on quite a small, no, tiny budget, I had to be creative when trying to figure out what I would do for a table between my 2 wicker chairs. I had been racking my brain for quite a while when all of the sudden a lightbulb went off. I realized that a 2' stepladder with a piece of wood on top would be the perfect height so I got to doing research on the internet to see much it would set me back. The cheapest I could find was around $25, so onto Plan B: Craigslist. I looked for a few weeks with no luck and I finally decided to post an ad in the 'wanted' section and got a response that same day. I ended up spending $10 on the ladder, which I think was a little pricey considering it stunk like cigarette smoke and one of the legs is bent, but since I hadn't had much luck, I jumped on the offer. I took a picture of the before, but it seems to have magically dissapeared into thin air which means I will probably find it the second I publish this post =)
Anyway, here is a photo of a much nicer version of my ladder:
I had my dad cut a piece of pine that measured 15x12 (it's actually 11.25 inches and I've never understood why they round it up to 12!).
