We definitely are on a table kick lately and have one more idea for you. We mentioned Abby's post on alternative nightstand ideas in our DIY post today and wanted to highlight another resourceful way for creating a table - books!
We love the idea of using coffee table books or magazines to create a functional table. We actually did have a magazine side table when we lived in New York a few years ago. We simply place a stack of magazines on an extra chair and placed it next to our bed, functioning as a nightstand, chair storage and make-shift bookcase for the magazines. So take some of those books that you may not read that often out of your bookshelves and use them in a functional and stylish way!
