Picture of IKEA HACK: bedside buddy

This smart bedside caddy has compartments to hold all your everyday carry (EDC) sundries. This simple IKEA hack was made from an IKEA flatware holder and has drawer pulls as feet. Put this caddy next to your bed to hold you phone and earplugs at night, or next to your couch to keep your remote controls in order.

The "Rationell" flatware tray was broken apart to make it shorter, then the "Lindsdal" drawer handles were modified to act as legs and inserted into the bottom of the tray.

What are the blue tube thingies? They look like party favors.

Nice work.

"IKEA HACK"? Careful, you might get shut down by the Swedish meatball makers for a copyright claim...

Bend a wire hanger (or add any vertical holder) to make this a jewelry stand. Plenty of room for rings and bracelets, and a spot for necklaces to hang out.
