Bed/Couch Caddy




About: Retired Air Force and Retired from my Appliance Repair Business. Love to make things. Outdoors, Boats and Motorcycle Riding

This is an easy furniture hack that can be accomplished in a few minutes. This project can be used on a bed or a couch. Simply insert the wood panel between the mattress and box springs in a bed or underneath the couch cushion.

Step 1: Making the Bed/Couch Caddy

1. Find a automobile drink caddy at a yard sale or thrift store.

2. Cut a thin piece (1/4" thick) of wood about 6" wide x 18" to 24" long.

3. Screw the wood to the bottom of the caddy.

4. Install it to your couch or bed. Makes reaching for your items easier and is a great organizer of every day items like remotes.
