Wedding gift for niece

This is the second time i made these tables.  The first time was for my son and his fiance to match the farmhouse bed that i made for them but i did not do the inset drawers.  Tried but couldn't get them to sit right.  My niece liked them and didn't have any tables to go along with the bed her new huband's grandfather had built.  I love the inset drawer look so i tried again.  The first one i had no problem with but the second one had to make the drawer box over a couple of times.  I did differ the pattern a bit and used 2" top instead of 1 inch simply because i had some leftovers.  I also used drawer slides instead of wood slides.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Estimated cost for both tables was about $120. I used good pine 2x2 to have straight legs. Had leftover paint and Varathane gloss finish from cabinet project.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Prime pine
Finish Used
Behr white paint with Varathane gloss finish. Top was a mixture of stains to try to match the bed.
