DIY Bed Tray

June 13, 2016

Hello everyone. How are you? Hope you had a nice weekend! I think you might agree with me, that Sunday mornings, or afternoons for that matter, feel best when spent in bed. And I don’t mean sleeping, oh no! It’s about having a cozy moment with a favorite book, sweet treats, magazines or a TV series watched on a laptop, while relaxing on soft layers of blankets and comfy pillows. Sounds very tempting, right? In case you wondered what I did yesterday, this is it – I had a little Sunday bed party with peach aperitivo, some good reads…and well yes, my camera to document it for you!

DIY Bed Tray
The crucial item to make this moment perfect is to have a handy bed tray near you, where you can place a little plate with food, reading glasses – to be sure you don’t sit on them or to place your laptop if you want to watch something. I know it’s very mean to speak about lazy, bed moments on Monday but on your next lazy day, this bed tray has to be part of your morning ritual. I can guarantee you that once you have it – you will be wondering how you could have lived without it.

It is super easy to make and doesn’t require advanced any carpenters skills to create it. Now that I (hopefully) convinced you to make it, let me show you how:

* a 50 x 40 cm wooden plank
* 2 rectangular shaped wooden sticks – 38 cm long each
* very strong wood glue
* sandpaper
* white wood paint and black permanent marker
* masking tape

DIY Bed Tray

* Start by polishing all the wooden elements with sandpaper, then rinse them with water to wash all the dust off.
* Mark the area you want to paint with a masking tape then paint it.
* When dry, using a black permanent pen draw little dots pattern on it.
* Turn the wood upside down and glue the wooden ‘legs’ to it at the ends using a strong glue.
* Leave the glue to dry well over the night.

And taaa daaa! Now you can enjoy your Sunday mornings, with a breakfast in bed!
