From Bench to Shelf DIY

We have a small bedroom so that leaves us with not a lot of space. we used to have his tall dresser on one side of the bed and my totally different size dresser on the other side of the bed. the symmetry of the room was off and it always bugged me. We recently got 2 matching lamps for either side, I knew it was time to finally bring the symmetry to the room that I always wanted. I, of course, don’t want to spend a bunch or any money on any DIY, this was on no different. I just ordered brackets from Amazon and that’s it! The to I will be using was an old bench I found outside. it was actually a bench from my childhood.
