There’s something incredibly pleasing about natural wood against a fresh white wall. This idea for turning a slice of tree into a hanging bedside table by Caitlin from Merrythought is so simply brilliant I had to share it. She used a piece of black walnut wood that was hanging around in her uncle’s barn, but if you don’t happen to have a stash of tree trunks handy *looks around blankly* I think that one of those natural knarled olive wood chopping boards would work just as well. You can often spot them at artisan markets or try The Rustic Dish, which sells them online. If you’ve been inspired to try making a hanging wooden side table of your own, head over to Merrythought blog for step-by-step instructions and lots of other wonderful DIY ideas.
