Materials: MALM nightstand, double socket, extension cable, circle cutter
Description: We needed a socket in our night stand, so after I found my circle cutter it was pretty easy: Cut a hole in the MALM nightstand, put the double socket in, attach an extension cable at the back and you’re done. I hid the extension cable under the toeboard, because the next socket to plug it in was 4 meters away.
On top, I drilled a hole in the small book shelf to hide a USB-cable behind it to charge my phone at night.
