You all know I am a big fan of creative, outside-the-box thinking. Throw in a good repurpose, and I’m in DIY heaven! Today I am sharing five fun ways to make a nightstand that all deviate from your typical bedside table. They can all be made from repurposed items, are relatively simple and don’t require building from scratch, and look downright awesome!
Let’s kick things off with this stool-turned-nightstand from Thrifty & Chic! I bet several of you have have an old barstool similar to this one sitting around your house, and if not, they are plentiful at thrift stores, garage sales, etc. I love how Alicia created a shelf by wrapping rope around the bottom foot rests. Genius!
Little did Katelyn from Learning Creating Living know, she had a new nightstand sitting right in her garage. That’s right… these crates were filled with randomness in the dusty garage! However, all cleaned up and stacked up, they make an adorable nightstand – with storage to boot!
Can you tell what these floating nightstands are made from? Old cabinet doors from a secondhand store! I agree with Rachel from Urban Acreage that they are way more fun than just using a store-bought floating shelf. Of course, cheaper is always nice too!
Are you a sucker for anything vintage? Why not turn an old suitcase into a nightstand like Reese from The Weathered Door did! She made it even cheaper by using the legs from an old table she had on hand.
I LOVE this table that Gina from Shabby Creek Cottage made from a $5 garage sale basket. All she had to do was simply flip over the wire basket and add a wood circle for the top. Brilliant, right? I love the aqua paint with the stained wood!
So what do you think about these unique nightstand ideas? Do you love their originality or do you prefer a more traditional bedside table? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
