Dear AT,

Here's the deal: I've just recently purchased the ubiquitous Ikea MALM bed, in black-brown.

I loved the suggestions I found on here for how to avoid the all-Malm room (an idea I'm positively allergic to).

We don't have a ton of space, so I've gone the alternative bedside table route.

I have this shelf (see picture to the left) that I want to secure next to my side of the bed for my glass of water and cell phone.

Our comforter is gold (Target) and the sheets are a deep, dark purple (Ikea), the walls are a subdued gray-green...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.

I'd love to paint this shelf, so I'd love some color suggestions from the general populous of the site!

Thanks! Courtney
