RETUR goes to bed

Materials: RETUR waste sorting bin

Description: In our bedroom there’s a lack of space beside our bed. I have spent a lot of time figuring out a solution for a bedside table.

Then suddenly I saw the RETUR bin and with a little time and creativity I made it fit into our bedroom.

I used wallpaper, decorative plastic and goldcolour.

  1. Hi!

    Nice work! It’s amazing!
    I would like to buy some wallpapper like this, may i ask where did you buy it? Ikea? Here in Ikea Portugal i could not find it…Not in the website.
    Thanks, and good work!

    Lovely idea! I was thinking of doing something for my tiny bedroom with the Trones units -I have them im my bathroom to hold cleaning products, my cat food & sand and spare towels!- but I might do a smaller, lighter scale now! ;^)
