For a while now, we've been trying to figure out nightstands. We weren't willing to wait for the RIGHT pair to come up on Craigslist, so we found a cheapo pair on Craigslist and made them work (and redo them so they work better).
We knew the stands weren't long-term. But, they allowed us to wait for a better pair, and we figured we could post the old stands on Craigslist to recoup $30-$50.
On Friday, we found the nightstands that will last us a good while: Two, beautiful, antique, dovetailed pieces. They were $24.99 each, but we got the pair for $40 (so within our recoup price range for the old nightstands!). I also like that they're flexible; we could someday use them as side tables in the house--- they don't necessarily have "nightstand only" written on them.
Without further ado, here are photos!
And yes, that's a basket with a drill under the bed. You know, in case I get up in the middle of the night and need to immediately tackle a project. Don't judge.
