Quick Tip: Night Stand Alternative
This past Christmas, I received a marvelous new bed. Something I didn't notice in the store but immediately noticed upon delivery is that new mattresses are significantly thicker than older ones. I'm talking a serious Princess and the Pea moment here.
While wonderful for the most comfortable night's sleep ever, these mattresses turn standard sized night stands into wooden dwarfs.
What's a person to do?
Install floating shelves.
It's also easier to vacuum under.
Find yourself in a position where your bed is too tall for standard night stands? (Or just want a simpler, neater look?) Floating shelves will take care of you.
