Nightstand for Dad (101)
Dad needed a small nightstand for his clock and the control to the heated mattress pad. The chest of drawers next to the bed is too tall to reach the control or see his clock. I made him this little nightstand to fit between the bed and chest of drawers. It is 12” wide by 18” deep by 24” high. I made it in the same style as I had made the little side table for Mom’s crocheting.
I think furniture should serve a purpose beyond just collecting “stuff” on top of it so I put in a small drawer with an insert to hold Dad’s hearing aids.
Dad is still doing well at 101 years old so I hope he gets many years of use from this piece of furniture.
