With tight quarters and budgets, you have to get creative. In making over her sister's tiny bedroom, Jenny has found a nightstand solution that's simple, affordable, and good-looking.

Jenny, of Little Green Notebook fame, used a corbel and wooden board from Michael's to create a wall-mounted spot for a drinking glass, book, or phone. Painting the nightstand the same color as the walls (Benjamin Moore's Bavarian Forest) limits visual distraction and focuses your eye on the corbel's shape.

The look is custom, the price is low, and the result is practical. For more photos and design inspiration, visit Little Green Notebook.
