Malm Entrance

Materials: MALM 3-piece headboard/bed shelf set

Description: Really a repurpose of the Malm bedhead with storage. We needed a narrow cupboard for our entrance and the Malm bedhead fitted perfectly. All that was needed was to turn the unit around and slide the end cupboards in. Voila! New entrance storage. Teamed with an Ikea mirror to finish the look.

    Kind of irrelevant, but a few months ago my husband found that exact tree figurine in orange on his way home from work, on someone’s nature strip as hard rubbish, so he took it home. We have no idea what it is for, if it is just a decoration, or if it came from a particular store. Can you tell me? I love it in black, we’ll have to spray paint ours now!

    Did you do anything to keep the headboard from toppling over? I have one but am moving and not sure if it will fit in the bedroom, and like the idea of using it as an entrance or hallway table/cupboard.

    Brilliant. I’ve been looking for something this height and depth for my hall – all the bookcases are too deep to fit well. Might add a couple of sheets of hardboard to the back.
