I haven’t gotten a night stand for my bedroom yet. I’m currently using a couple of boxes with a cloth over them.
I wouldn’t need anything more fancy, except I want to put a lamp next to the bed. Whenever I want light, I either have to use the light switch in the wall, or I have to use the light from my iPad screen.
One of these days I’ll get around to acquiring a night stand. Til then, the boxes and lack of light will have to do.
