A happy bedside table

Alicia gives her Rian bedside table a happy new look.

She says, “It’s not really a difficult hack, but I covered my Rian table with fabric.

All I did was to detach the tabletop with a screwdriver. Lay the top side down on fabric and attach with a staple gun, pulling the fabric tightly. Screw the top back on, and voila.”

    I am looking for it, and Ikea CS said maybe discontinued…
    I was also liked Anes bedside table and that was too late to find from catalog.
    Now I am searching from ebay.
    Why they just discontinue like this useful cheap stuff…

    The IKEA website says that the Rian isn’t available anywhere in the US. I don’t know when that happened, it was on display at my local IKEA last month.

    It is an excellent table, though. The height is absolutely perfect!

    I couldn’t find it, either. And it’s a very sterile table which reminded me of the hospital without the fabric. It’s much cheerier this way.
