Before and after pictures say it all! This was my nightstand several months ago.
And today.... I'd like to think that my sleep is less "cluttered," but that's not really true. I'm just much less discouraged when I wake up and I don't have a pile of books spilling off my night stand. It's easier to find my current book, too.
The truth of the matter is that my cozy, inviting bed is hard to sleep in sometimes. See the picture below? Notice how much room there is for me to sleep in my own bed? But, I have to admit, my last two girlies are really cuddlers and I love it! (most of the time...)
