Nighstand No. 2

Ever since I installed my floating shelf nightstand, the other side of the bed has been pretty empty. Some vintage wooden crates were stacked there for a little while, but they have since found new homes elsewhere in the apartment. After stumbling across this awesome Ikea laundry hamper turned side table over on The Clever Bunny, and remembering that I had that hamper stored away, I figured that I'd take a stab at the same project. hamper1

I pretty much followed her tutorial to the tee, so I won't go into too much detail about the process here. I decided to keep the pine wood in it's natural state without staining it, but I did apply a few coats of polyurethane.


A few months ago, I talked a little bit about the collections that I've accumulated over the years. When I was little, I'd collect these little animal figurines made out of wood, clay, marble, and other materials, usually from overseas flea markets.
