Easy DIY Bedside Organizer

{UPDATE: Since this post was created, we have moved and have created a new use for this bedside organizer.  Click on the link to see the updated idea of a DIY Charging Station.}

Our home is an older, smaller home.  With that being said our bedroom has room for only one nightstand. The only nightstand is on my husband’s side of the bed leaving me with the second window wall next to my head.  I needed somewhere to put my reading materials, Chapstick, hair ties, and such because they had been piling up on the floor next to me.

So I headed to a discount store, looking for solutions.  I found a sea foam green metal desk letter organizer for a whole whopping $8!  This is the white version of my desk caddy.


I love the cut out designs, which will also serve a functional purpose for my bedside organizer.

I used the removable tab hooks, measuring with the metal organizer, ensuring that the cut out leaf designs would line up perfectly with the hooks.  These hooks are my new best friends – they can go up anywhere and come down easily without taking away paint.  And they are cheap!

The finished bedside organizer.  It is lightweight, cheap, roomy, and a nifty color.
