View Full Version : Bedside storage

11-09-2012, 11:32 PM
Originally, I was using a small table beside the bed, since my side doesn't have a shelf. The table worked but I would hit it getting in and out of bed and items would get knocked off. Another complication is a sliding door for the bath, which prevents a shelf being added to the nearby wall.

So, here is my solution. I found a little metal-mesh storage basket at 'Big Lots', and added some hooks to the slide facia with Command adhesive strips. The basket will be removed for travel.

very nice - I may steal that solution for my own... since my current bed side storage is "The Floor"

Because the facia isn't flush, I slightly bent the top edge of the basket to conform. The hooks came with double-stick tape... But I used 3M Command strips in case I need to remove them.

I had to cut the mesh to make holes for the hooks, but needle-nose pliers seemed to work.

Looks great. Maybe later today I will see it in person.

Looking good! Here is what I did. But Erika I know you could not do this due to your window being too low.

Thats cool... our bedside table is at the foot of the bed!?!.. I could do that on my side as there is the side of a closet where I could put this up high enough to be out of the way but could still reach my phone etc.
