We found this great idea for an affordable, space saving DIY nightstand on HGTV.  Buy an old table at Goodwill, paint it up, cut in half, and put one half on either side of the bed and screw into the wall using L brackets. Two nightstands from one.  We especially love how the fuchsia nightstand adds a fun pop of color against the navy wall.  What a clever idea!

There is beauty in Simplicity.
