When we looked closely at images of the invalid Matisse sitting in bed or in a chair making his beautiful paper cutouts, we realized that he used an adjustable bed table similar to one we’;ve had for years.

We came across ours while trolling Ebay for mid-century furniture nearly 20 years ago. Billed as a?Danish Modern Teak Rolling Tray Table,?it looked mighty useful so we bought it. Over the years, we’;ve found it to be astonishingly versatile:

it’;s a handy laptop desk we can place anywhere in our space (including over the bed for sick-day working a la Matisse)personalized wedding party gifts, a side-table to place by the dining table to hold wine or?platters of food. Since the height adjusted from 25″; to 35″; we used it low and horizontal as a side-table for our sofa; it hit at exactly the height of the sofa arm. Perfect.

These days, we keep it by the window covered with a linen cloth for an instant still-life studio for Improvised Life photos.

The main surface tilts from horizontal to an extreme angle; a lip holds reading materials or laptop in place. There’;s a little surface on the side for a copy of tea or flowers. Wheels allow us to move it easily. And, should we decide we just don’;t have room for it, it disassembles and can be packed into a flat box. You can see?detailed pictures at 1st Dibs.

Our version by Danecastle is similar, but not quite as elegant (or pricey) to a “;reading stand”; designed by the great Bruno Mathsson.

These vintage mid-century models are pretty pricey now. We’;ve seen the cheaper Danecastle listed on Ebay for about $600 (we bought ours for $90.) ?If you’;re lucky you might find one at a second-hand store or yard sale.

But looking closely at Matisse’;s, his was not particularly beautiful.

We’;re thinking it might be possible to hack the various laptop/bed tables around, like this $25?Angle &; Height Adjustable Rolling Laptop Desk Over Bed Hospital Table Stand. We’;d swap out the fake wood for real, make the top pieces sleeker rectangles, ?and rough-up?the finish of the metal support using a sanding sponge. (Ed note: we haven’;t actually seen this one, but it gets good reviews.)?

It might be possible to do similar visual-enhancing hacks to a vintage hospital table. It’;s the stand that’;s the essential part.

We like this baby as is:

Summer is almost over and soon we’ll be bundled up in warm sweaters dreaming of pumpkin spice lattes! I know it’s hard to get in the mood when it’s still triple digits outside but here’s a fun and easy rustic DIY fall wreath you can start picking up supplies for so that your porch is ready when Autumn hits.
