Quick Nightstand

Materials: IKEA Marius stool

Description: The legs of the IKEA stool Marius are part of this really quick and easy DIY project. I simply screwed the legs to a little drawer similar to the IKEA fira drawers, which are unfortunately not available anymore. I got mine from a hardwarestore. The result is still a very fresh and quick new addition to our bedroom!

    I like it! Maybe look for a lamp with a smaller base – to take up less room, or find a hanging lamp to get it totally outta the way. Otherwise though, Good Job!
