My bedside table constantly feels cluttered no matter how many times I try to organize it. A few years ago I saw a picture of this shelf on the internet and kept the picture to remind myself of the pure genius of this idea. I could keep a few of my books next to my bed without cluttering the bedside table and it looks neat and tidy.
I bought these 100 x 75mm brackets from Builders Warehouse for R16 each, and with the help of my dad screwed them into the wall. I then painted them the same colour as the Wall to hide them as much as possible. For only R32 and a few screws I ended up with a beautiful book case and a clear bedside table.
