Our beds are one of our favorite places, if not THE favorite place. With this DIY Bed Lap Desk, you can spend more time in bed working on a laptop or enjoying breakfast. This homemade lap table stands up from your lap so you don't have to hunch or crouch as you sit in bed to see what's on your lap. Your computer will look great on top of this unfinished wood lap desk. There's no shame in hitting the sack early—especially with a handcrafted lap desk by your side (or right in front of you).

I love the raw look of the wood. It's not even sanded down or painted. This industrial look is amazing for minimalist and people who don't work with wood often so don't have the experience or tools. You could have the hairpin legs drilled into the wood in minutes and enjoy your new bed lap table for work or reading or binging on your favourite shows on that lazy weekend.

I really like this idea! I think it will make my room feel like a hotel, too. I think the desk is a great place to put your phone.

What a brilliant idea. I often work on my lap top in bed, especially when it is cold. This is no trouble at all to make either. It is also an idea to make for mom on mother's day (with dad's help) and then you can take her breakfast in bed and present her with her gift. I know I would love a present like that.

Love this DIY lap desk! It looks like it's the perfect size for a book and cup of coffee :)

This is so beautiful! Way better than a plastic store-bought version.
