Best option to hide bedside files?
This is a cross post from the Woodworking forum. This concerns simply the decorating aspect alone. The goal is to hide household files I want to store on each side of the bed. My home is small and space is at a premium. The bedroom has a double bed and 24" wall space on either side. Walls are painted soft gold. There are pull out drawers under the platform bed so access to these is an issue. I could have white custom mobile file cabinets made with a lower file drawer and a small upper utility drawer. However, this is an expensive option for files that would see infrequent use. Inexpensive mobile file drawers on the floor beside the bed would meet my needs but I would want them hidden from view. What do you think of having a 24" wide white hanging shelf with fabric hung from the underside of the front edge of the shelf to hide the files? There is also an open type nightstand that matches my cherry stained bed available. One side clips onto the bedrail to allow access to the underbed drawers. There is room to put the mobile files under the nightstand and this same hanging fabric technique could be used. A simple solid soft gold shimmery fabric is what I have in mind. It is part of a Candice Olson bedding collection which was purchased for this room's make-over. A metallic thread is woven into the fabric. Anyway, honest feedback would be appreciated.
