How to Make An Easy Night Stand

While visiting a friend recently, I got the idea to make a simple night stand for my newly assembled guest bedroom. (Thank you, 19-year-old boy, for leaving your bedroom for me to girl up.) She used two piles of books and a TV-tray. When I expressed to her that I had lots of extra books I didn't know what to do with, but no extra TV-trays lying around at home, she dug into her storage and gave me one! What else are friends for? She blogged about her nightstand HERE, and now I'm blogging about mine....

This came together in about half an hour, was free, and it's cute and functional. Thanks, BJ!


P.S. My sister and I are finally getting skinnier!
See how we're doing it HERE! :)

I love this idea! But what if I want to borrow some of those books (and I think I do!)

I'm curious, Laurie, which ones? :)

I like the books turn sideways. Nice touch!

Scream-free parenting called to me, don't know why because my kids are all grown up. And then there was one about getting rich...I think I saw a few others as well, maybe I'll just have to come and borrow your guest room so I can have some reading time!
