Keeping Clutter at Bay with a Furniture Makeover

At Names on the Jersey Shore, Susan discovered one disadvantage when she upgraded to a flat screen TV on the wall.   "The table we had the old tv on was quickly becoming a clutter spot,"  she notes.  "It's that spot that everyone dumps everything.  Obviously we needed a piece of furniture that was smaller but still had room for the Fios box & the Wii, etc." Names on the Jersey Shore nightstand before
