Did you put too much thought when planning your bedroom?
Do you use a normal night stand?
When my husband and I first moved in together we had enough furniture to fill in a three bedroom apartment but no bedroom furniture. For three years we used a file cabinet and a storage ottoman for nightstands while our mattress was placed right on the floor. Then we moved in into a current home where we realized that we needed nightstands that provide lots of storage, so we used a small size dressers. Those dressers have been great and are the right height for our bed frame.
Now we have a problem at my mom’s new home. There is nothing there. No bed frames, no nightstands, no bedside lamps, just the mattress on the floor with bed linens of course. At least in three of the bedrooms there is overhead light, but unfortunately for my brother he has the room where you flip the switch to turn on a light that it’s plugged into the wall. While we are searching for cheap nightstands options his lamp is just hanging out on the floor.
I know that I can take a simple box or the paint bucket and turn into a nightstand, but honestly who would want to look at that. I love the different and non traditional ideas for nightstands that I was able to find.
Do you have a standard nightstand?
