What’s the first thing that you see when you wake up? You’re right, it’s your nightstand! So why settle for a standard and ordinary nightstand when you could have a repurposed nightstand. So many items that you may have sitting around your house can make creative and unique night stands! When building your bedroom sanctuary, try not to get caught up in buying full bedroom sets, but let your creativity flow, branch out and try an unconventional nightstand.
For those old ladders that you maybe can’t use for their intended purpose because you’re scared of their actual ability to work as a ladder, use them as a fun and rustic side table! The height and space that you gain from using a ladder also allows you to show off more of your decorations than a standard bedside table.
How about having a nightstand that in reality doesn’t have to actually stand on anything? Try a floating nightstand like the ones above by using wood or old trays and hanging them from the ceiling! You free up tons of floor space and create a simple nightstand that is simple and free of bulkiness.
While I may not be the best seamstress in the world, I love the idea of using an old sewing machine table as an actual table, and specifically a nightstand. Such a sweet country chic accent!
And why have one nightstand when you could have three? If you have had any trees recently removed from your yard, take segments of the trunk and turn them into nightstand pieces!
Bar carts are just the best! I used this bar cart in this guest bedroom that I designed because it’s the perfect fit for this space and can be easily wheeled around a repurposed! Don’t limit yourself to just using them in the main areas of your home, but use them as your trusty nightstand as well!
I know that I have many older pieces of luggage like the one above passed down from grandparents. I love the makeover that was done to this suitcase, turning it into a nightstand! The best part is that it can double as storage and you can actually use the inside of the suitcase to store extra blankets, an alarm clock or books.
What unique pieces have you used for nightstands in your home?
Happy Whimsy Wednesday!
