what is a nightstand? Is it a bedside table?

American for a low bedside table typically having drawers

In a British English context, a nightstand is not the same as a bedside table. These days, a nightstand takes the form of a shelf (or two) attached to the headboard. Imagine a bedside table, but without any legs...

The dictionary English/ Romanian has two words for Noptiera: bedside table and nightstand. An other adds bedroom table. Based on this the bedside table I used should be accepted.
