For several months, I had been eyeing this gorgeous acrylic TV Tray at CB2, when one day it hit me. "I could totally make that," I literally yelled out loud to myself. Oh brother ... it gets lonely working out of your house sometimes. But I digress. Let's get back to the table, shall we? It is so chic looking, and I just love TV trays. They are super functional. Plus they remind me of being at my Grandma + Grandpa's house when I was young. My grandma used to make us yummy snacks, and we would eat them off of TV trays. Would it be weird if I break out the TV trays next time I'm back for a visit?
So I recreated this $149 CB2 TV Tray for $60; however, you can definitely do it for less. I used 1/2" thick acrylic because I wanted it to be really thick. However, you will get the same thick look with the 3/8" or the 1/4," and it will save you a ton! You can make this for $30 really. In case you haven't noticed, I love to save some money by recreating some really expensive home accessories on the cheap like this Swiss Cross Throw or this Hoop Light.
