I continue to refine My Room. I'm quite pleased with the loft bed and the storage I gained by raising it. I also like the location of the dresser and how the room flows around the tables.
But those plastic tables were never supposed to stay very long and I really wanted to get started on an island. I was just waiting until building the storage bases percolated up to the top of the project list. Then I had an idea (Pinterest is very dangerous) - use bedside tables along with my other file cabinet as the base.
I looked at Craig's List but couldn't find anything I liked (and was willing to pay for), so we went down to our local Restore (Habitat for Humanity charity thrift store). They had some great nightstands and it was even 10% off Wednesday. Woot!

This also meant I could use the top from my old desk instead of having to buy or build a new top. Shopping the house again - nice!
