Spotted at the PegandAwl Etsy shop (above) and Martha Stewart Living (below) simultaneously: bath tub trays/desks made out of a wood (reclaimed or new) board. Beautiful (and a relief from those wire grid tray) but we worry about the board sliding off the edge of the tub. MSL advises screwing on wood struts below. We’ve got another approach…
Place a heavy rock (which we keep around for multiple uses) on one edge so the weight keeps it in place; then you can even cantilever a longish board over the other side of the tub for more room. We tried it with an old painted shelf we had in the storehouse (as per our usual practice: we see an idea and try out our own iteration):
Perfect for us whose tub time is an essential source of relaxation and idea generation.
