DIY Breakfast Tray

I am so thrilled to bring you this incredibly easy DIY breakfast tray today! I personally love spending long mornings, when I can, reading or working in bed as I sip my coffee. I feel like I get my best ideas first thing in the morning as I perusing other inspiration sites, Pinterest, and the beautiful images I see on Instagram. 

With a young puppy on my hands, spilling my coffee is inevitable but with this breakfast tray it makes it less likely to happen! My DIY breakfast tray is the ideal size for you to work on and share with your partner or child in bed. 

And just like with all my DIYs, it only takes 10 minutes to make! 


Pinewood board (We got ours from Michael’s
Two handles 
4 screws 


Lay your pinewood board upside down where you’ll be drilling the holes for your handles. Mark the spots with a pencil. Take a drill and drill the screws into the handles. Flip over and you’ve got a breakfast tray!

How gorgeous is this notebook from Michael’s? I couldn’t help myself and had to buy it! 

I love the simplicity of this DIY breakfast tray and can easily be decorated to fix your decor tastes. As we all know, I’m a huge proponent of simplicity and minimalist design. Although I am toying around with writing a quote in calligraphy on the tray but we’ll see! 

Do you like working in bed? What inspires you the most when you’re working? I’ve recently told a friend about #flashesofdelight from The Glitter Guide and it’s incredibly addicting! I couldn’t help myself but turn someone else onto their hashtag. Each creator through that hashtag is so incredibly inspiring and creative! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week! If you make my DIY breakfast tray, I’d love to see it! Simply tag @papermeetspearl in your Instagram post!

  1. Your breakfast tray is gorgeous! Definitely my style.

    It’d be fun to add a cushion underneath with a few staples, some fabric, and plush filling so that you can use it on the couch too. 🙂
