Create Your Own Industrial Bedside Table
Bedside tables are surprisingly expensive. Even though they’re one of the smallest furniture items in your house, they somehow always end up more expensive than your living room coffee table. Instead of spending the cash on a tiny table, make it yourself with cinder blocks.
For this DIY, all you need are two sturdy blocks for the base. Then, you can use a piece of wood, glass, or another cinder block as the top. The cinder block holes make it perfect to store your phone and books at night.
