It’s like a miniature cupboard with plenty of space to storage blankets, clothes, books … anything you need!

5. Nightstand on Wheels

Can you relate to that itch some of us have that compels us to redecorate the whole house every couple of months? We just can’t help ourselves! Make your hobby a little easier by thinking ahead: when you’re building a nightstand, make sure it has wheels! Shanty 2 Chic can lend you a helping hand.

6. Floating Nightstand

Speaking of Shanty 2 Chic and their innovative nightstand ideas, did you catch this modern floating nightstand? It’s a fantastic choice for a bedroom that is looking to embody modern design concepts while keeping the furniture simplified and functional.

7. Pull Out Ledge Nightstand

A nightstand serves the purpose of storing your bedtime essentials, such as a good book or a sleeping mask, but this doesn’t have to be its only purpose. You can transform a nightstand into a mini table by attaching a simple pull-out ledge, like Jaime Costiglio did for the children’s room!

8. Tiny Floating Nightstand

If you don’t need your nightstand to be very big, The Merry Thought has one that you’re going to love! The tiny size of the surface prevents you from cramming it with unnecessary items, therefore assuring your bedside will always be kept neat and orderly.

9. Copper and Wood Slice Nightstand

Fall for DIY‘s copper and wood slice nightstand is where simplicity meets modern design and where wood dances with metal. It’s one of the most balanced bedside pieces we’ve seen so far and it’s almost unbelievable that you get to make it yourself!

10. Cheese Box Nightstand

We love upcycling! It’s one of the best ways to get rid of the old and welcome in the new at the same time, without spending too much money or time. Today we’ve learned from LAX to YVR how a giant cheese box can be repurposed into an old-fashioned, one of a kind nightstand!

11. Pastel Yellow Nightstand

Functionality of the nightstand is a very important aspect to consider, but the design itself is just as powerful. If you are tired of flipping through home decor magazines that only show nightstands with the typical wooden look, build yourself a nightstand in a charming pastel yellow, following the example at Anika’s DIY Life!

12. Chicken Wire Nightstand

Can a nightstand have a traditional but unique style at the same time? This chicken wire nightstand by Charming Imperfections proves that it can! It has the familiar appearance of a wooden cabinet, as well as a surprise element of the chicken wire that you don’t normally see in the bedroom!
