Shelf-Turned-Bedside Table

Martha Stewart Living, October 2012

To save floor space and create a sense of airiness in a bedroom, use a bracketed shelf instead of a nightstand. We love the look of this reclaimed-wood plank supported by sturdy cast-metal brackets, but you can use any type of wood or a premade shelf as long as it fits the dimensions of your brackets. When hanging the brackets, make sure you use the proper anchor for your wall type. (If you're not sure, ask at a hardware store.)

Ledge brackets, 5 1/2" depth, $35 each, Tokyo 1 small desk lamp, by Misewell, in Black, $245,
