We bought a new BRIMNES bed frame with storage by IKEA. It is handy with drawers under the bed.
To complete the bed we also got a BRIMNES bedside table. We assembled both and placed bed and nightstand in place. It looked perfect, but then, we scratched out heads and thought “How to open the storage drawers beneath the bed?”
The nightstand blocks the opening of the drawer. We’ll have to move the bedside table every time we want to access the storage.
This is really irritating. So we got our heads together to solve this.
And this is our solution: A one-legged BRIMNES bedside table.
With this simple mod, it is not necessary anymore to push the nightstand away to open the drawer.
