Farmhouse Bedside table

My husband and I decided to tackle the farmhouse bedside table as our first project. It was a test to see if we could build together without fighting and bickering. We succeeded! It is a little "rustic" but we are pretty proud of our first build. It was definitely a learning experience. The top is a little uneven due to one of the boards having a slight bend to it. I also should have put epoxy on the knots of the pine before painting it. We are going to make one more to match for the other side of the bed. Thanks for the plans Ana!

Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Finish Used
We used a mahogany stain for the top. I did 3 coats of it, rubbing it off after 10 minutes and letting it dry for at least 4 hours between stains. I then did a polyurethane coat, glossy, on top. I sanded after the first coat and then did two more after. For the bottom part, I did a coat of oil-based Killz to seal it and prevent leak through. I then sanded as the killz tends to raise up the grain. I did two coats of a semi-gloss Behr latex paint. The name is seaside sand.
