Cupholder for Bed?
June 13, 2011 11:42 AM   Subscribe

Any bedside cupholders that attach to the mattress?

We live in the bed a lot, especially since we got a new fabulous one. When not out strolling in our neighborhood, we're working or just hanging out in our bed. We have seen remote control pockets that attach to the mattress but not cupholders and have thus turned to the hive mind to see if anyone has seen any cupholder (or small tray?) that attaches to the mattress - NOT standalone, and not as a table that rolls, but is held in place by the weight of the mattress. thanks!

Maybe a poker cup-holder like this might work.

You could use THIS as a cupholder.

Maybe a rectangle of thin-ish plywood, through one end of which you have cut a hole, the right size to keep your tapered-toward-the-bottom cup from falling through? (Most of the plywood goes under the mattress; just the part with the hole sticks out.)

If the plywood tends to droop, you could add a couple of L-brackets that would lean against the side of the box spring.

Neat Sheets might be another option.
