You see side tables all over in coffee shops and living rooms, hallways and beside your favourite Mahogany sleigh beds, serving as an end table or nightstand. Side tables are a necessity of every civilized life with a million and one uses. Whether it's your glass of water, your family pictures or even your laptop, side tables are designed to house them all. But as any good designer knows, sometimes the functional furniture can be just as interesting as the oddball stuff that serves no function at all but makes for great conversation pieces. Here are our top pick on bedside table ideas and table decorations ideas, so read ahead and get inspired for your next DIY home project!
Antique Side TableThe first antique side table we'll look at is the one with a drawer. This furniture comes in different sizes and styles, but it's usually made from wood and has a drawer that can be used for your items. For example, you can keep your favourite book or mug inside this storage space. Antique side tables with shelves are another option if you want something more versatile than a simple surface on top of which you can put things like cups or plates. You can use these pieces as end tables next to your couch or bed, where they'll keep books close by while also giving off an elegant vibe when people come into your living room, like Hudson Furniture’s Classic Provence French Bedside. Another popular style includes antique side tables with storage underneath them—this provides even more space for small things like remotes or other electronics, so they don't get lost among more essential items on the surface (or hidden away somewhere else). Some people prefer having three drawers instead; everything stays organized even if there's extra stuff lying around!
Scandinavian Side TableScandinavian side tables for bedroom are known for their minimalist design and are usually wood-made. They are popular in modern interiors because they add an organic feel to the bedside table decor and make it look more comfortable. The best part about Scandinavian tables is that they can be placed anywhere, from your living room to your bedroom or bathroom, depending on where you find them most useful. Some Scandinavian tables have been designed with drawers to store things like books or magazines, while others have shelves built into them so that you can display your table decor ideas on top of them. Scandinavian side table designs can differ depending on where they were made and by whom—but one thing remains constant: they’re usually placed next to a sofa! This design might be right up your alley if you want something more traditional but still appealing!
Vintage Side TableTo make a vintage side table, you need old wood that's at least 10 inches wide. Some good options include reclaimed wooden planks and pallets. If your wood still needs to be old enough, soak it in water for several hours to make it more weathered-looking before you begin construction. Use a hammer and nails to attach the pieces in the shape of an L-shaped platform (or whatever other body works for your space). Sand down the entire piece with sandpaper until it looks worn and antique-y!
Painted NightstandPaint is a great way to give an old piece a new look. Use a brush or roller to apply the paint, depending on whether you want an even coat. Let dry before using, and use a damp cloth to wipe off any excess paint from the tabletop (or anywhere else) afterward. For example Campaign Side Table

Modular Side TableThe modular side table is unique and can be used as a modern modular coffee table or end table. This side table has two levels, one open and the other closed. It has a drawer in the lower level, and it can also be used to store items such as books or magazines. You can add this side table in your room to create additional space for your guests, like magazines, books, etc., along with an LED lamp so that they will have enough light when reading them at night!
Bamboo Side TableBamboo is a renewable resource that is strong, lightweight, and easy to work with. Bamboo also has an excellent track record for durability. It's naturally resistant to insects and decay, making it a good insulator for side tables too.
Farmhouse Style Side TableIf you're looking for a way to add some rustic charm to your home, look no further than the farmhouse-style side table. These tables are easy to make and can be customized to fit any space. They can also be made from reclaimed wood or repurposed furniture items like wooden pallets. To start, gather your supplies:
