This chic furniture piece will not only give you the option of acquiring a useful and cheap furniture piece, but looks super chic and will add style to any room you place it in. The process of creating this cool DIY bedside table involves cutting four timber wood pieces, creating the striped design with the help of tape and paint, and assembling the table. To make it more secure, you will also need to use small leftover pieces of wood and screws to attach the boards to one another. Use gloss varnish to make your bedside table even more beautiful!
