My New Night Stand
3 Attachment(s)
I thought I would share couple pictures of my new custom built night stand for our Escape 19. This is a little different from add shelves in that it is not attach to any wall surfaces but rather I bolted it through the plywood under the bed. It just one less set of holes in the paneling walls.
The night stand was made to holding small things like alarm clock ,eyeglasses, phones etc.

Now THAT is totally cool!

Yes, indeedy. It is visually appealing with its open structure.

WOW, great looking and totally useful. Sometimes the simple ideas are the best ideas. Too bad they're so hard to come up with. Good thinking!

Clever way to use the mattress for stabilizing while continuing the design! This one is going on the to-do list. Thank you for sharing.

NIce! It is right up there with the roll-out shelves in terms of useful ideas

Great idea. The design could be adapted for those with other bed arrangements too.;)

I wanted to add a extra picture of the back corner of the night stand shelves that I built. This picture allows you to see the back cut on the back side of the shelves . By making this 45 angle cut on the back corners of the shelves it allowed the night stand to sit tightly in the corner. It also gives a good place to run power cords neatly behind the nightstand out of sight. One last point I also put black felt on all the edges of the shelves to protect against scratching the vinyl and the paneling.
