Two items used to make the coffee table were a laundry basket, priced at $ 29 (photo left) and a wooden tray, priced at $ 12 (photo right)

Her side table was made using a laundry basket from the store, priced at $ 29, with the lining removed.

A $ 12 tray, also from the discount sale, was placed on top. The woman said that it fits well and did not need glue to hold it in place.

& # 39; Fits perfectly! You could glue it to hold it in place or leave it as it is to remove the top and use storage underneath, & she said.

The tray fits exactly in the top of the basket, which means that no glue is needed to hold it in place
