I’ve been looking for ages for a bathtub table. Checking Etsy first of all, looking in local shops, browsing the Internet.. Nothing suited my minimalist home the way I’d pictured it in my head (besides the prices on shipping are hilarious).
I have no idea why we didn’t do this before, it was so simple! Not to mention cheap!! And it fits my “home spa” like a glove..
You start by measuring how wide your bathtub is at the top. Drive over to your local hardware store and buy some materials. We used Royal-impregnated wood of brown colour. This material is water-resistant and the colouring goes through the whole board. We bought three boards measuring 11.5cm x 2.5cm (4.5″ x 1″).
Here our dog Nano is checking out the underside of the table. Use small boards and galvanized screws to hold the big boards together.
This is the coloring of these boards after you cut them. Royal-impregnated wood is both sturdy and nice to look at. 🙂
Here is a view from under the table. Before you fasten the screws, line everything up and be sure that the small boards on the underside line up with the edges of the bathtub!
See, now I can watch my favorite show from a tub full of suds! Go for it! 🙂
