DIY HOME: BEDSIDE TABLES

Recently an Australian magazine got in touch wanting to know what my bedroom looked like and if I was interested in being part of an article about the bedrooms of Australia creatives. My room is in many ways quite minimalist and nice, but full disclosure, it’s barely bigger than the bed that sits in the middle of it. Let’s remember I live in Hong Kong – the most expen$ive rent in the world! Luckily, having your room photographed is a great incentive to investing energy in creating a more inviting space (complete with vignette style nooks – more on that later), and learning to get around the small size was a big part of this. Scouring the internet for boudoir inspiration, I was instantly taken with various DIYed bedside tables, much more exciting than the stool that was doing that job up until recently. Personally, I’m loving the idea of a ladder as a bedside table, a bit of a balancing act required but oh so space efficient (yay!).
