ROMANTIC NIGHT STANDS - french style bedside cabinets



Nightstands can be very pretty and functional while being a very romantic addition to the bedroom.

BUT did you know ...




BEFORE              AFTER

"Before indoor flushing toilets became commonplace, the 
main function of a nightstand was to contain a chamber pot.
 As a result, early nightstands were often small cabinets,
 sometimes fitted with a drawer, and usually containing an
 enclosed storage space below covered by one or more
 doors. Another term sometimes given to such cabinets was commode."

I actually just saw one recently on a favorite TV show of mine
 Salvage Hunters. The drawer pulled out and it was in the
 shape of a toilet seat. Can you imagine? 
Anyhow there are no commodes in my pretty night stands.
