Here’s another DIY build I just finished.
Our youngest son has been needing a bedside table since, well, he’s never had one, so forever! Just for fun I decided to check out the Pottery Barn Kids furniture line. I loved the look of their Camp Nightstand, but at $318 PER TABLE, I knew this would be another DIY project in the making.
Using the Pottery Barn table as my inspiration, I built a custom size one to fit our sons room. Using my Kreg Jig to drill the pocket holes made assembly fairly quick and simple. I glued/nailed some thin trim on the sides to match the inspiration pic.
Because he has a natural color wood bed in his room, I chose to build a wood top, routered a decorative profile along the edge and stained it to match. I took the following picture at night and the flash is making the color look too red. I used the same router bit along the edge of the drawer front as well.
The rest of the table got a coat of primer, a couple coats of a custom mix blue latex and then a couple clear coats.
I had an extra drawer pull in the garage and I think it works well on this side table.
I know this table will work perfectly in his room for his little clock, a small lamp and a few books.
And, another project complete!
Thanks for popping by!
