Improved and lowered Malm Nightstand

Materials: 2x MALM Chest with 2 drawers, black-brown

Description: We bought two small Malm Chests as nightstands but I the height of them annoyed me real quick.

So we cut off the lower half of each Malm and attached the remaining pieces to the back so you’d receive a nightstand looking like the old Malm nightstand.

We added a power socket to the top and mounted our selfmade lamps to the back plate.

Only thing I had to buy were the sockets, matching covers and two tiny hooks for the lampshades.

    that’s a great idea.
    i know lots of people were upset when they discontinued the floating stands (myself included. i have 1 floating stand. *eyeroll* ).
