If you have a small bedroom but still want to have a bedside table, here is an idea to inspire you and give you a way to have that bedside table without giving up the floor space you may need for shoes or a waste basket. The Merry Thought shares how she took a slab of black walnut although you could use what ever wood you may be able to get or already have. The black walnut is very nice but cherry would be or even some lighter color like maple. The instructions are pretty simple but the bedside table is a pretty nice addition to a smaller room and really catches the eye. A longer rectangular shelf hung this way in front of a kitchen window would be nice for small pots of herbs. You could hang on beside your desk if you need a little extra space for accessories or a plant, just about anywhere there is limited floor space but you really need just a little more area to put things.
