Farmhouse Bedside Table

Submitted by holly1968 on Sun, 10/02/2011 - 08:32

This bedside table is sooo easy to do. My husband and I made this table in about 1 1/2 hours. Of course, this doesnt include the time it took to paint and stain. When the cutting and nailing is done, so is my husband. Finishing the projects is up to me! lol Following the plan precisely makes this easy to build! The only thing we did differently is that we added an outside stretcher across the bottom front. I love love LOVE this table! I purchased the drawer pulls from Lowes on clearance for $1.19 each.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Approximately $40
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine White Board/Wood purchases from Lowes Home Improvement Center
Finish Used
Do-It_Best 1 step paint and primer. The color is Bullfrog.
Do-It-Best paints are paints carried at our local hardware store. I used 1 coat of the paint/primer in 1, as it allows just small hints of the wood to show through in some areas, I really like the look!
The stain used on the top is Rust-Oleum in the Summer Oak shade, purchased from Lowes Home Improvement. I applied 2 coats of the stain. I have not put polyurethane over the stain or paint as of yet.
