Charging Nightstands

Submitted by SaraLodise on Thu, 10/03/2013 - 12:45

This was such an awesome plan for us. We have two phones, two kindles, a tablet, a laptop, lamp dimmers and heated mattress pad controls. Needless to say the wires got a little out of control. The plans were super quick and easy, and it was no hassle to make two of them. I used the same stain combo Ana used on her's but I finished with Miniwax Polycrylic for extra protection against wet water glasses, early morning coffee spills and dog slobber. I love the rustic earthy tone the stains make.

Dresser set soon to come!

P.S. the center pieces on the doors are left over oak scraps I had in 1/2" thick. Thus, they stained a bit more red than the pine boards. I was worried about the contrast but I really like the way it turned out.

Why do you tease? That latch is no longer available!

But seriously, beautiful night stands.
