Ladder TableMarch 23rd, 2015 in member junk
I acquired a really cool ladder with rungs & decided to make a table from it. I had a drop leaf table top that was primitive looking, so I took the sides off & used the center portion of the table top. I had some boards that had been used for slats on an old bed & used those for the frame. I cut a center section from the ladder so I could use it for another project. I cut the boards/slats to size & sanded them down a bit. I already had some spindles that were cut in half, so I added those as some trim on the rough edges. I used L brackets to attach the table top to the ladder. I have a Kreg Jig, but I need to figure out how to use it! :) The table was bar height. I figured the ladder could be cut down if someone chose to make it shorter. I also put a couple of coats of polycrylic on the base to preserve the chippy paint on the ladder. I just used Restor-a-Finish on the table top because I loved the patina it had.
I put the table in my vendor space & it sold the next day! :)
