Remember when I started our bathroom renovations?! Almost a year ago! This bath table is the final DIY project from that space. What’s an amazing bathroom without beautiful bathroom accessories? When we renovated our bathroom, I briefly considered getting rid of the bathtub altogether, but I just couldn’t part with it! Nothing relaxes me like a warm bath, a candle, a book, and a glass of wine. So clearly I had to join them all together with a bath tub wine glass holder!

How Do You Build Your Own Bath Table?

Measure your bathtub width. Take the width and add 4″, this will be your width for the tray (2″ overhang on each side). Take your pine shelf board and it cut it down to that width. Then cut it to the proper length (ours was 8″)

Using a router table, scroll saw, or jig saw cut a  1/4″ wide grooved “L” into the board. If desired, you can use a drill bit and drill a 1/4″ diameter hole at the end and at the 90 deg corner of the “L” to assist in cutting out the “L” shape. [Note: if your wine glasses have wider stems, you will need to make a wider groove!]. Our grooves were 10″ from the centre of the board.

Cut two 1.25″ x 5″ guides to go on the underside of the board (to prevent the board from sliding off the tub). Attach the guides to the underside of the board. They would be set at 1/4″ smaller than the inside width of the tub. The inside of our tub was 27″, so our guides were set at 26.5″ apart. Use finish nails and glue to attach the guides to the bottom of the board.

Sand and finish the bath tray to your desired look. I used my favourite dark stain. Then use a waterproof/resistant urethane to finish bath tray (as it will be in a wet environment).

  1. This is fantastic! I love that you added a wine glass holder. Now if you can just help me figure out how to keep the kiddos from asking me 20 questions (each) when I get in the bath. Lol!
