DIY Copy Cat Nesting Tables

I found the cutest little nesting tables on PB, but I didn't want to spend $400. Instead, I adjusted the sizes a bit and built my own.

Estimated Cost
For both talbes (excluding paint), it was just over $15
Estimated Time Investment
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Finish Used
Distressed. Painted with turquoise (no primer), then glazed with walnut.

Wow you make it look so easy! Your details on your blog are awesome! Makes me want to go out and buy a router! LOL Hope your thumb is healing.

hahaha...I had to laugh at the thumb comment. I did break it, but that didn't stop me from picking up the router to finish the top :) I mean, it is just a thumb, not an entire arm, right?

Thank you for the kind comments. I try to post as much information as possible (and if I don't, please ask). I love seeing great project blogs, but found it frustrating when they would show the supplies or paint they used...then the finished project. But nothing in between. How did they do it?

When I found Ana's site, I was so relieved that there were communities where they thrive on sharing information. Y'all are amazing! A-MAZ-ING!

I'm moving from a teeny tiny apartment to a real house next month, and the first thing I'm going to do with the garage space is build these nesting tables. They really are great. Well done! Love the blog too.
