These are made from the three drawer plans but modified the size to meet our needs and used planks for shelves instead of drawers. Painted white and black gel stain.
UPDATE FROM ANA - We have received MANY requests for this plan and have created a plan inspired by this post here.

Hello, this nightstand was built using these plans http://www.ana-white.com/2011/06/reclaimed-wood-look-bedside-table instead of adding drawers the builder added shelves. The shelves can be 3/4" plywood or 1x boards.

Hello, this nightstand was built using this plan, but instead of drawers, simply measure and cut shelves to fit from 3/4" plywood. http://www.ana-white.com/2011/06/reclaimed-wood-look-bedside-table

It's taken us a couple of weekends, but we finished our bedside table. We made two, but one still needs painting.
Thank you for the plans. We had a great deal of fun and learning experience making these.
