Creating a Bench Seat...from Bedside Tables!

We've got another IKEA hack for you today. This one involves repurposing bedside tables into a sweet little bench seat complete with storage underneath. A great spot for reading together with your children, putting on shoes or for parents to hang out while their kids play nearby.

We found this splendid creation over on the Mondo Cherry blog. It's made from two IKEA bedside tables put together and topped with a tailored cushion and some pillows to lean against. This weekend, take a look around your house to see what piece(s) of furniture could be repurposed into something you need for a nursery or playroom before buying something new.
