Copper and timber bedside table
Every bedroom needs a bedside table. It’s a handy spot for a lamp, the book you’re reading, your phone, and a glass of water. Rather than just using timber, you can make one with a contemporary twist. A copper bedside table, pictured above, can add a touch of industrial style and become a focal point in your room.
Wooden coat rack
If you’ve got jackets, hats and scarves lying around the house, then a wooden coat rack can sort that out. It makes a great addition to any home and gives you somewhere to hang your outerwear when you come home. It’s easy to knock one up and will make a big impression in your hallway, living area or bedroom.
You can add colour and interest to bare walls with a timber, some basic tools, and you can get it done in no time. It’ll transform the look and feel of any room.
As anyone with a study or home office knows, clutter has a way of growing. Before you know it, it’s out of control. A pegboard shelf can clear all that stuff off your desk. It’s easy to make and a handy storage unit for all your stationery or any items you want to put on display. Your space will look neater and you’ll feel a lot more organised.
You can rejuvenate your bedroom and turn a boring bed into a stylish centrepiece with a timber bedhead. It provides support for when you’re sitting up reading a book or watching TV, plus timber is warmer and more comfortable than a brick or plaster wall. With just a few materials and a bit of inspiration, you can get it done before bedtime.
Wooden triangle shelf
Shelving is a good way to keep a kid’s bedroom tidy. However, it doesn’t have to be boring. A triangle shelf makes a fun design feature to display their favourite toys. The kids can help you put it together and decorate it any way they like. You could also make a few for yourself and hang them up around the rest of the house.
