Over-Bed table for watching TV / Laptop

Hi all,

IKEA used to make a MALM "Occasional Table" that rolled over the top of your bed...

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/34/ee/c3/3...bile-table.jpg

They discontinued it a while back, unfortunately. Has anyone seen or bought anything similar? There are a lot of incredibly ugly medical style devices
(e.g. https://img.newpharma.net/images/pro...pelblatt.1.jpg )
but no complete over-bed things I can find anywhere.

Any ideas?

The bedroom is for two things, neither of them involves watching TV.

Depends how quickly you finish the first one and therefore how long you have before the second.

I have 'birch' one in storage if you're interested. Need to double-check on the condition.

Re: Over-Bed table for watching TV / Laptop

We made one for our daughter from chipboard and L-brackets. It worked OK, but wasn't the most stable of items.
