Home-Dzine - Home DIY: Wall-mounted bedside table - I think the idea of having a wall-mounted bedside table is great. It takes up less room than a free-standing bedside table, it's easier to clean the bedroom, and you can even use the space underneath for a storage basket if you need to. http://www.home-dzine.co.za/diy/diy-nightstand.htm#
...zero space for nightstands? Buy a pair of corbels. (Home Depot) They fit the narrow space perfectly. Stop by local craft store and check out the wood plaque section (Michaels) - 2 drywall screw-ins later...a nightstand! They add a little something to the lines of the room, but they also disappear since they're the same color as the wall.
