RV Bedside Table: One Nightstand

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Since we have a set of drawers instead of a nightstand next to the bed in our RV, I devised a nightstand of my own. All it took was a ¼-inch-thick wooden board that I placed across the top of the open drawer and some brad nails to fasten on a couple of side rails (wood glue would work in place of brads). I used 3⁄8-by-3⁄8-inch wood strips for the side rails (¼-inch round would work, too) to hold the nightstand in place on top of the open drawer and keep things from sliding off the top. Now I have an instant nightstand!

I cut the board to fit inside the drawer for storage when it’s not in use.
