Reclaimed Wood Look Bedside Table - Modified

Submitted by lishamarie on Thu, 09/01/2011 - 18:42

I built the reclaimed wood headboard for our master bedroom, and then found some awesome reclaimed-look stools at Pottery Barn on sale. About a month after that, Ana came out with her reclaimed wood bedside table plans. I was slightly bummed that I already had these cool stools, but then I realized that I had a whole guest room that I could build for! My guest room has a beach theme so I painted my tables white. The room is also kind of small, so I decided that I would put in one drawer and put in a shelf on the bottom. That way it wouldn't look so huge in the room. I love it! And I found these cool bronze starfish knobs at Lowe's. I got a little overzealous at times and I have pocket hole screws in places that are visible, but not that visible. It could be better. All in all, I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

Estimated Cost
$60 (for two)
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
premium whitewood
Finish Used
Valspar Flat White Spray Paint and Valspar Clear Flat topcoat. I sanded all the edges with 150 grit sandpaper before applying the topcoat. After the topcoat dried, I lightly sanded it again with 220 grit sandpaper to smooth out all the bumps.

Curious about how the bottom shelf is supported - how did you attach it to the solid side panels? Looks great! :)
