Introduction: DIY Foldable Wooden Tray for Sofa
Until recently, there were no hard surfaces near Steph's couch to set snacks and beverages. We had seen this idea for a flexible hard surface on Pinterest and decided to give it a try!
We grabbed some wood molding and sticky felt and got to work!
Be sure to watch the video, it's really short, but it gives you the entire rundown on how to make one. It can be customized to whatever size you need.

Step 2: Cut & Sand Screen Molding
The tray is made with 25 pieces of screen molding all cut to 12" each.
Mark the first piece at 12" and cut in a miter box with a saw. This piece can now be used to measure all the rest of the pieces.
Using a piece of 150 grit sandpaper, sand any rough ends and edges. Remove the paper labels from the back of the pieces.
Step 3: Stain or Paint Wood
If you're staining your tray do that now, let dry, then add a protective finish.
Step 4: Add Sticky Felt to Back
Lay the pieces right side down, line the ends up with a straight edge like a ruler.
Remove the protective paper from the self-stick felt and put on the back and you're done!
Step 5: Done!
This is a quick project that uses few tools and techniques. It makes a great gift! The size can be customized as well as the finishes to suit the recipient.
