Description: Creating a nightstand that matches the low depth but still giving enough space inside.
We were in need of some new nightstands for our renovated bedroom. We went for a high Malm bed but the regular Malm nightstands didn’t matched our requirements we had, as they were all too huge.
After browsing the IKEA website and the IKEA Hackers website for several days, I came up with this nightstand. Luckily, IKEA sells the same colours in the Malm, Billy and Effektiv series, so no colour trouble there!
