DIY Bed Tray
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! 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:
SUPPLIES * 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
HOW TO * 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!
