I didn’t realize the necessity of a nightstand until recently. You see, we moved into our new home in January with only a mattress on the floor. I knew our furniture-less status was temporary so I didn’t mind it so much. I have this thing where I don’t like buying things that I don’t really really love, so until something speaks to me, we do without. After a couple of months of not falling in love with a bed frame, I finally bucked up and bought an Ikea bed to appease us temporarily. All of a sudden, we were 2 ½” feet higher and our nightstand was no longer the floor. What to do?! Now, the race is on for some unique nightstands!
