DIY Bed Tray

June 10, 2014

I really wish I would have thought of this sooner...
Fun Fact: I have habit of writing in these notebooks, working, and occasionally eating while in bed, but I've never invested in any type of tray or table. Don't get me wrong I've thought about it, but being the complete cheapskate that I am I could never justify the purchase in my mind... That, and I secretly wanted to DIY my own.

I wish I could say I got this idea on purpose but that wouldn't be an honest answer. Truthfully, I forgot about gigantic picture frame (that I got from here) that I stuffed in the side of my closet 2 months ago to get it out of the way while I was moving. I also forgot that I made the "Start where you are..." canvas to inside the frame to hang on the wall...

I finally put the two together and even determined where I wanted it to hang on the wall (which I still do when not it use. Brilliant, right?). Well, while I was in the process of hanging when I was distracted and had to put my new artwork down. I casually left it on the bed and walked away. Upon my return, I was stopped in my tracks because I accidentally made the tray I had been wanting to make. I literally stunned myself by seeing it laying there just waiting for my to write and eat on. So I gave it a go, and so far so good! The best part is I don't have to buy anything extra!

Will you give it a try? I'd love to hear about your project.
