Ok, so it's a bit weird looking because my future son in law did the cross pieces and he just could not get it to work out right. It also looks more lopsided than it should because I just slapped it together on top of my grandbaby's little table. I'll do some fine tuning with hot glue a little later.
Anyway, it's just a $12 piece of 4x8 hardwood plywood bought from lowes. We had them cut the squares to our measurements (should have had them do the crosspiece strips too but oh well), a square wood dowel, little bit of craft paint, glued ribbon to two edges and lace to two other edges. Total cost was about $18.
Oh, and those roses on top are coffee filter roses I made stuck into a styrofoam block.
So tell me, Craftsters, how bad does it look?
