Dressers As Bedside Tables

Small rooms need their storage as much as (or more than) their larger counterparts. Which means that when a small bedroom needs to prioritize between a dresser and a bedside table, the dresser often wins:

Here is another bedroom that sneaks in storage by using dressers as bedside tables. These are a good height for use beside the bed, but even when dressers are a little too tall, the storage they provide outweighs their slightly awkward height.

One tip: A lamp placed atop a too-tall-dresser-as-bedside-table can be fitted with a cord switch so you can turn it off without getting out of bed.

Do any readers use a dresser as bedside table? How have you made it work for you?
