Farmhouse Side Table

I decided to build this bedside table for a friend of mine who just graduated from college as a special graduation gift. I thought it was a beautiful plan, and knew she would love it. This table was fairly easy to build and easy to finish. I ran into problems with the shelf, at first I decided to just add 1x2's around the bottom, but didn't like that and then built the shelf with a "frame" around it. It turned out nice, I hope she likes it.

Estimated Cost
About $100 for all the wood and finishing products. I used no scraps
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used

This looks great! I'm thinking about building something very similar, and I was wondering what type of wood you used?
