Bedside Cabinet Set

This is a solution for a tight space. The client has a small bedroom, a king size bed, and lots of magazines and books. She could not find end tables that were small enough to fit between the bed and the wall and still large enough to serve her needs.

The mirror-image bedside cabinets are narrow, fitting in the roughly 12” space between the wall and bed. They’re also 24” deep to provide the overall surface area needed to hold side lamps, a clock, and a couple of books. They feature a drawer with traditional dovetail joinery for small items, and a large storage area below with a flat panel door to match existing pieces in the room. There was also room behind the long drawers to create secret compartments for valuables. The cabinets have exterior magazine racks for added storage space. Oak construction and golden oak finish match other bedroom furniture in the room.

The cabinets are made from salvaged church pews. In fact, the external magazine racks are from the original missal holders. A small carving on the door accents the pieces and relates them to the bedroom decor. Antique hardware (knobs and hinges) was supplied by the client.
