Do It Yourself - - What To Do With -

The low-slung chair, right, is vis­ually bal­anced with a tall blan­ket lad­der and a lower tim­ber side ta­ble, both of which Erin made. The lad­der is built from two closet rods and six dow­els, grad­u­ally di­min­ish­ing in length, spaced 10½ inches apart along the 7-foot lad­der. She fin­ished it with a two-tone look— stained (Varathane Wood Stain in Sun­bleached) and spray-painted glossy white (Rust-Oleum White Lac­quer). She cre­ated the side ta­ble by cut­ting four 20-inch-tall pieces of pine from a 6×6×96inch post, then used a cir­cu­lar saw to make an­gled cuts in each of the legs. The pieces are at­tached with wood dow­els glued into place. “The key power tool here is a belt san­der as it smooths out a mul­ti­tude of sins—un­level legs, un­even top, and rough edges,” Erin says.
