One of the most cottage style table out there is the tray table. I've made a couple of these miniature tray tables for my dollhouses. They add a lot of charm. I've seen there's a kit out there somewhere. But I've never found it. So I decided to try to make one. I'm just winging it though! So as usual it's not perfect. But a good vintage style piece to have anyways! :)
Deb this one's for you! (Deb requested this tutorial)

Cut all four ends a little slanted so they will touch the ground and the tray when they are crossed. It's about a 45 degree angle. Your legs should be about 2 5/8" or so. You can make the table as tall or short as you need it though.
Glue those pieces to the bottom of the legs about a half inch from the ground. Let dry.
