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:
-a 50 x 40 cm wooden plank
-2 rectangular shaped wooden sticks – 38 cm long each
-very strong wood glue
-white wood paint and black permanent marker
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.

A wonderful, and I think a really low-priced idea, it´s looking great.
