Don’t be confined by what the furniture stores say furniture should be used for. In my bedroom I had limited space so I wanted my nightstand to be multi-functional.
This “desk” is now a nightstand, vanity and a desk, all-in-one!
When you are shopping, think outside the box. Ask yourself, what are your needs for the space the piece will be in?
You can save yourself a ton of money and space if you just let your imagination take over!The stool above is an antique piano stool. It is perfect for what I need because it completely disappears and hides under to be out of my way. It is also adjustable, so I am always at the right height for my “desk/nightstand/vanity”.
The drawers in the desk serve many uses; holding my makeup, reading glasses, hand moisturizer, etc.
Another great option for a nightstand is a antique secretary desk. I love them for this use, they can close up and everything disappears. Perfect for when you are having company!
Get Inspired! Look around your home to see if you can use something you already have before making another trip to the furniture store.
