About This Project

Our guest bedroom has been utterly neglected and stark. When I found a pair of lamps at Goodwill recently, I knew it was time to make bedside tables.

These were created on the fly, without even a sketch or a trip to the lumber yard, though I had to select a plan title for this post.

I took a plywood scrap, cut it in half, framed it with 1x2 furring strips, added 2x2 legs, and then used more furring strips to stabilize the legs.

They were assembled quickly, and then I faced choices about how to finish them. I ended up using Minwax Provincial for the tops, then taping them off with trash bags and spray painting the rest.

They're plain, but versatile enough for whatever I end up doing to decorate the guest room in the future. I plan to stick baskets underneath them, when I find a good deal.

Next up will be a headboard for the bed.

From Plan (new): 
Estimated Cost: 
Two cans of spray paint + scraps (probably about $24 worth all together?)
Estimated Time Investment: 
An Hour or Two (0-2 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Type of Wood: 
furring strips, plywood
Finish Used: 
Minwax Provincial, white satin spray paint + primer (Valspar)
clips

Pretty!

I love the simple, clean lines in these little tables. I see white spray-painted baskets, filled with guest towels and pretty things. Nice job, especially for building on the fly!
