Not Your Ordinary TV Tray

276 Views
Today I was sitting on the couch, watching tv and eating a bbq sandwich. It was a bit of a messy sandwich but I wasn't worried about making a mess because I was directly over my plate. I looked down and thought to myself this really does make a great TV tray...
Time: 1 Hours Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy
This is one spool unpainted and dirty
This is two spools screwed together. Clean and painted !
Two 3' long screws and two washers. Too simple!!
Large charger type plate with a dip. It fit so well on top of the spools. The wicker one does too. Painting it all gold!
I was using the charger on top of the spools already it just wasn't painted.

I didn't think about this when I posted about the things I have made from spools.
Now I can add a TV tray to the list!  
Here is a much better picture.
I use it all the time, you can put it right up to whatever you are sitting on and your legs fit right around it, not like a big square tray that gets knocked over with the wind !
Thanks for looking and I welcome all comments!
