Lets talk side tables

Sometimes it pays to think outside the square when it comes to decorating a room and side tables are no exception. There are lots of traditional examples but here go a few ideas that can add a bit more interest to a bedroom:

Stools make an excellent side table. A lamp sits nicely on the top with a small pile of books underneath. Unfortunately they don’t add a lot of storage in a room but at the same time they don’t take up too much space either.

This house doctor stool from Superette store is very cool with a mix of metal and wood:

Or if you are after a less expensive option then the Mocka Hudson stool is a fabulous choice.

Especially with a painted top:

These side kick tables are beautiful. Designed and made in NZ by Timothy John, owner of Paper Plane they are constructed from a powder coated steel base and solid american ash hardwood top.

Or this is a DIY option to consider. These drum tables are on sale at Bed, Bath & Beyond at the moment. I would recommend spray painting the tops of these.

The Juno stool from Freedom Furniture is another affordable option and comes in lots of fun, bright colours:

And finally if you are concerned about where to put all the kids’ books then these spice racks from Ikea are a great idea for the wall. They come in plain wood and can be painted any colour you like. Available in NZ from Akia:
