Only when I tried living without a nightstand did I realize how important this modest member of the furniture pantheon really is. Bedside tables perform only one function, but it’s a vital one—keeping the accouterments of a good night’s sleep within easy arm’s reach.
But while I would argue that owning one is a must, buying one isn’t. There are countless ways to create a DIY nightstand cheaply and easily. Here are five favorites. Besides its chic industrial styling and wonderful metallic blue, what I love about this DIY nightstand is its set of integral drawers that allow for storage of personal items aplenty.
Bedroom nightstands double as good finish tables within your living room or den. At just the appropriate height to reach from the couch, nightstands disguise themselves perfectly as end tables. With drawers and tiny shelves, a nightstand presents far more storage space than the average finish table.
Before buying a cherry wood nightstand, you should have a proper assessment of the space available at your disposal. If you have got a lesser space, a smaller nightstand will do for you. If you have got large sized, spacious bedroom, you can opt for a bigger night stand with more space for storage.
