    My last m/h had a small corner shelf at back which was great for putting keys & loose change etc. on at night time, this one doesn't :( I'm trying to find one that I can fit but without much luck, any suggestions?
    Ideally something about 5 or 6" with a lip around the front curve.
    Thanks

    Hi sunshine I bought one but rectangular from b and q... for same reason. It was in sale for six pounds. @Terry put it up for me. I have now bought another .. no sale .. ten pounds .. but cut it down to about 6 x 3 inches as opposed to 10 x 3 ins or thereabouts. They are perfect for the job.

    I've used a glass self from an old Bathroom Cabinet 200mmX70mm, got it on the wall above the fixed bed
    Great for glasses case/phonewallet/w h y, and somewhere to balance the early morning cup of rosie

    See attached. Glass shelf brackets and half a cork serving mat, mounted above the bed. At least with cork, when I hit it with my head on it, it does less damage (to my head, at least).

    Although it maybe dosnt show up on the photo, it is semi circular with a chamfered edge, and they have loads.

    We have this problem of no bedtime shelf. But i am going to try and make one out of cloth with pockets to store stuff. Then use the hooks that stick on to hang it off. It will be long a narrow to hang the width of the bed. Not sure what it will look like, but no drilling.
