Farmhouse Nightstand

Submitted by Kimbers on Tue, 10/02/2012 - 13:42

I wanted a nightstand to match my farmhouse bed. I used the cheapest pine boards I could find to build this and it turned out great!

When I first built it I just used a scrap of fabric tied in a knot for the handle but added a real drawer pull when I built the matching dresser.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$40
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Pine - Cheap Furring Strips
Finish Used
I used Kilz 2 Primer then painted with Behr Silk Pillow. I sanded down all the edges then wiped on a coat of Minwax English Chestnut and sprayed with krylon matte clear sealer.
I totally stole the finish idea from boxermum here http://ana-white.com/2011/04/king-farmhouse-bed-1
