I think you might agree with me, that some moments, particulary weekend afternoons, are 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. In fact I wish I could do it right now, don’t you? A little bed party with peach aperitivo, some good reads…and well yes, a camera to document it for you, ha!
The key item to make this moment possible is to have a handy tray near you, where you can place all the little items (food plate, glasses!) like the one you see in the photos. I have created it for my final post on Decor8 and really hope you like it. To all of you who have been following my DIY column I want to say big thank for the support and let’s have some more creative moments over here! Ready?
That’s how you can make this tray:
You will need:
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.
What do you say? Do you like bed trays too?
If yes, have a look at this one, I made lat year too.
