We take a few things in consideration before purchasing a bedside table.  It has to be the correct height next to your bed, have enough storage space, be big enough to place a few items on, etc.  Have you ever considered using an item in your home; that has been utilised as something entirely different, as a bedside table?  Have a look at the examples below to get the imagination going.
