How to build a floating nightstand

Everyone has different opinion about letting baby sleeping in the parent bedroom or on his own room. Short chopped nights are a big struggle for me…as I want to be able to feel asleep as soon as possible after feeding my baby, we decide to place her crib just next to our bed. So I can even put the pacifier back in her mouth without getting out of bed, which I appreciate especially during the winter months.

To be able to fit the crib next to the bed, I modified a little our bedroom space, and took off my table nightstand. As I still like to read before sleeping I hanged a floating nightstand. I build this shelf for Bob Vila, it’s pretty easy to make and you only need one lumber to make it!
