My Juliet Nightstand

This sweet little nightstand is the perfect addition to any room.  Inspired by the Juliette Nightstand from Pottery Barn Kids, I wanted to create it using some leftover materials I had from previous projects. 

The top, sides and shelf were constructed from mdf.  The legs were cut from a spruce 2x4 that I ripped down on my table saw to a square 1.5" x 1.5" post.  The adorable little curvy “feet” are actually from a pine stair baluster!  I chopped it down into pieces and by drilling a small hole in the top of the “foot” and the bottom of the table leg, I was able to glue them in place with no worry of them moving around.

The drawer interior was built from 3/8” plywood.   I cut a dado groove along the bottom for a 1/4" plywood base to fit in.  The drawer was then installed with simple white drawer glides.  The adjustable lower shelf sits on simple chrome shelf pins so it’s quick and easy to adjust.

The soft white paint colour and clear coat in a satin finish was perfect for the table.  And of course the glass drawer pull was the finishing touch!

This lovely little table has been sold.

Thanks for popping by!
