I am currently putting together an Indian Nights bedroom and wanted an affordable bedside table. So I decided to hack an IKEA MARIUS stool.

Super affordable and easy to hack into a table. I found this Indian brass tray on eBay. It was the perfect fit size wise and design wise.

And I love the result. I think it looks way more expensive than it’s total cost of £17.49!

This isn’t my first MARIUS hack. Here are some old ones. I used trays here too and then used the plastic stool seats as a wall decoration.

And here I simply placed a bowl on top as it was the perfect fit (check out the details here).

The MARIUS stools are a great base for a table hack so happy making!
