Make an original bedside table – 45 practical ideas

The bedside table is a crucial piece in the bedroom. If you are tired of traditional bedside tables and you want to create a playful spirit in your room, we reassure you right away. The ideas for an original bedside table are not lacking and the pieces we are going to show you here are more than cool. The first reason to install such a piece of furniture in your room is of course related to its practical function. But with the wide variety of styles available to decorate, each piece of furniture also has a function of personalizing the space. Recycled furniture such as cupboards, drawers, stools or small tables can act as an original bedside table. And it’s not just about furniture – vintage suitcases , tree trunks, reels and reels, bricks and even stacked books are materials for creating an original bedside table.

An easy idea, to achieve quickly with three wooden boxes, two larger and a small

Materials

  • three crates light wooden boxes – two medium and one small
  • two brushes – a fine and a medium
  • tape
  • Sandpaper
  • ALP paints

Production

  1. We first sand the boxes, because we will paint their bottom. Sand with sandpaper and wipe with a damp cloth to remove any burrs.
  2. Adhere the tape to all four sides of the crate to prevent paint overflows.
  3. Carefully paint the edges with a fine paintbrush. Then paint the bottom of the box with a white ALP paint. ALP paint is very practical, it does not require varnish and it is removed with water.
  4. Once the paint has dried, remove the adhesive tape and draw the Nordic crosses in attractive colors. Here we used gray and yellow paint, mixed with a little white.
  5. Also paint the edges, if you wish, paste an original sticker, as on the second picture and arrange the boxes, so that they form a piece of furniture (see below).
