Must a nightstand always just be a nightstand?  I say No.  Especially when you are dealing with small spaces (like my house).  When I was a designer for hotels, one trick we would use for small awkward rooms was to use the desk as the nightstand.  Why not incorporate this in the home?

I love the idea of adding some additional function to this space.  This is not what I originally had planned for our quick & easy bedroom redo… but welcome to the wonderful world of decorating. 

Now to find the perfect desk & chair.  The HUNT is on!
