I am an avid fan of DIY and my home is one place that has almost all its corners and alleys adorned with DIY furniture and accessories.
For table stands for my bedroom, I too, took inspiration from nightstand ideas presented in magazines and got myself a pretty apple crate for doing some creative innovations. Yes, old fruit crates can serve a very useful purpose besides being used to store things. As you can see, there are a number of nightstands made of old and worn out crates whereby owners have joined two crates to create lovely looking nightstands for bedrooms.
Old desks or typist tables can also be transformed into smart nightstands for such spaces that are small and compact. Desks offer a larger space wherein you can place a number of things apart from your bedside lamp. In one of the images that I have showed, the nightstand has been made out of a normal console table whose surface has been adorned with decoupage work, all by using paints and prints at home.
Bar stools too make for elegant and chic nightstands as these can be refurnished using paints and fabrics as per one’s whims. Similarly, there are other options like using stacks of old books and magazines to create a trendy nightstand for your bedroom.
