DIY Nightstand

I spent the summer gathering/creating furniture for my new apartment.
I knew I wanted a nightstand in my bedroom but I couldn't come up with the perfect thing.
Then, I was creeping around my family's garage and found an old step ladder than probably couldn't hold a human.
I stole it and cleaned it off and fell in love! It was a hideous color so I hit it with some spray paint and wallah, the perfect nightstand was born!

I am so in love with this thing. 

But I probably should have dusted it before taking this picture.

I think it looks so cute in my little cabin-like bedroom. 
Also, its so easy to charge your phone or whatever because the chords can just come from behind it.
It holds my clock, book, phone, and a drink! The perfect size for me without taking up much room. 

This is the easiest diy in the world, I am not even sure I should call it that. 
If you have a cool nightstand idea, let me know! 
I am always looking to change things up.


P.S. I am reading The Time Traveler's Wife right now, have any of you read it/did you like it?


  1. I've been looking for a nightstand and this is perfect! Simple, bright, and versatile!

  2. Let me know if you end up doing it! I would love to see a picture. :)
