This hack is easy-to-make and very clever to obtain the perfect night stand. In search of a nice night stand for limited space next to my bed, this small cabinet (17 cm, 6.7″) is perfect in between my door and bed.
First of all, according to IKEA this cabinet should be hung on the wall, but it is perfectly stable standing up. Therefore, we could turn the cabinet upside down!
Just three simple alterations:
1. The wall attachment elements don’t have to be installed
2. When adding the back to the cabinet, only nail the wooden planks behind the mirror part of the cabinet, but leave the extra shelf open.
3. Turn the cabinet upside down and set the glass plates (behind the mirror) in place.
Finished! Now you have a great see-through night stand, your reading books accessible from both sides and therefore more table space to put your stuff on this small night stand 🙂
