3-Drawer Night Stands

Submitted by danicarby on Thu, 06/06/2013 - 18:28

I followed the plans almost exact except I used wire finish nails to attach the top boards and drawer faces (with glue) to give it a handmade-rustic look. I also didn't use the euro metal drawer slides but instead ripped my own out of 3/4-inch thick pieces of wood by 16" long and attached them under the drawers and on top of the front/back stretchers (I had to add back stretchers for the top 2-drawers since they weren't in the plan). I also added adjustable metal slides to the legs to give it a nicer look.

Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine
Finish Used
I used Minwax Grey stain and applied a semi-gloss polyurethane (just 1 coat) and lightly sanded with 220 grit paper.
Recommended Skill Level

Thinking I need to grab a can of grey stain and try it out. ;-)
