I tried living without bedside tables for a while and really thought it wasn't going to be a big deal, but boy was I wrong. I missed having a place to keep my cell phone, glass of water, etc — so I've rejoined the bedside table posse and I'm glad to be back. With that said, I still wasn't willing to pay an outrageous prices for bedside tables, so I turned to DIY.
I'll have an actual How To post coming in the near future, but I actually used two ANTONIUS laundry stands from IKEA for the bases. They turned out really fun, look modern and didn't break the bank. My own project got me inspired to share even more DIY bedside tables as inspiration. Here are some of my favorites:
• HUNDE HUS Pet House and Bedside Table
• My DIY Bedside Table!
• IKEA-Hacked Bedside Stands
• Tiffany and Jaan's Scandinavian Inspired Flat
• A Stool Turned Bedside Table
