This project is SO simple it's almost silly, but it will make your bathroom feel like a spa and you'll love having it around! This easy bathtub tray is absolutely beautiful, and will only take you about an hour to put together! For more fun and simple DIY project ideas, check out my blog, Love & Renovations.
Start by choosing your wood. You'll need one 1X12 board cut to the width of your tub. I recommend choosing a nicer hard wood to make it feel a little more luxurious. I used curly maple for this project.
Start by measuring your bathtub at the widest part. You’ll want to go from the wall all the way to the outer edge of the tub.

Once you’ve measured, cut your board down to the appropriate size.
Next, measure from the outside edge of the tub to the inside edge on both sides. You’re looking for where to put the supports on the bottom so the tray doesn’t slide around.

Cut two small pieces of wood to use as feet (you can use scrap wood here, doesn’t need to be pretty!)

Using your second measurement (the width of your tub sides), attach the “feet” to the tub tray using wood glue and a nail or two.
Fully sand the board until it's completely smooth, then seal it with a shellac. Then, pop it onto your bathtub, pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy!
