Snug as a Bug: 10 Quirky Nightstands

As we’ve been covering in quite a few of our posts lately, there’s no shortage of creativity in the world of furnishings and home decor.  Today’s roundup of quirky nightstands continues the theme with quite the dash of inventive ingenuity; the Seven-Night-Stand, for example, offers little daily cubbies for pills, reminder notes and whatever else we might need to assign ourselves in advance so we won’t forget them, and lest you think it sounds like hospital furniture, take a look; if anything, it’s more Scabble-inspired than clinical.  Then there’s the upcycling and repurposing going on with IKEA Hacker’s hanging basket, HGTV’s accent table split in two and reinvented into double-nighstands, and of course, the Funky Junk Sisters’ vintage trash can-turned-bedside table.  It’s all in the eye of the beholder, and if a good night’s sleep helps boost the creative juices, these ten inventive souls must be getting plenty of shut-eye.
