Step Ladder Makeover + Old Crate = Fun Tray Table

I bought an old painters step ladder that was layered with chippy paint originally thinking I would leave it as is. However I couldn't find a place for it to fit in my house so I stripped and sanded it and repainted.
Another purchase of an old crate gave me the idea to combine the two to make a shabby tray table for my dining room which ended up being the perfect fit for my ladder.
