Hamper Turned Into Side Table

Thrifty and Chic
by Thrifty and Chic
I really hate doing laundry and anything to do with laundry, so why did I buy a hamper from Ikea? I really don't know. Maybe the fact that it was cheap and the idea of actually getting my laundry under control was alluring. But, that hamper sat in my garage for months and months. Then one day as I walked by it for the hundredth time, I thought that the frame was perfect to make a table out of. So I grabbed an old cabinet door and the frame and made a cute little side table!
Ikea hack: Hamper (and cabinet door) into cute little side table.
This was the hamper before. I'm sure I would have eventually used it for it's intended use ....
To connect the two, I just used some pipe straps from the plumbing aisle
I love how this looks in my living room now. It's perfect and narrow

    Awesome! I always wonder where the table legs come from on some of these projects and this is really cool.

    Talk about a thrifty idea, taking the legs off your hamper........super....I really like the idea if anything tips over, it doesn't go far.
