If you saw the scrap wood pile in my garage you might never come back to visit again…. Seriously.
My girls were in need of a nightstand for their bedroom so I decided to put these scraps (well a few of them anyway) to good use!
The result… A great table that cost me under $9 to build. I used Ana White’s Farmhouse Bedside Table Plan for this one. I finished it during one nap time… For real! My only purchase were 4- 2×2 furring strips at under $2 a piece. I used wood glue and nails on the whole thing.
My scraps were MDF from my 2 Storage Systems I built in the playroom and the nursery.
I found my pull at Hobby Lobby. For those of you that can’t see that tag it says $3.99 and I got it half off… Whoop!
I gave it one coat of spray paint that just happened to match the paint I used on the table perfectly. After it dried I scratched it up just a bit with some 220 sand paper. I thought it was a perfect touch.
I painted my table with 2 coats of Olympic satin paint called Off White… pretty simple! I decided to leave her alone and not distress. The pull itself was just enough shanty for this piece.
Want to see it all finished?? Ok… I admit it. I couldn’t resist the urge to put my own lamp on this one rather than the girls’. I love this table and I may just highjack it for my own room. What do you think?
Not bad for a pile of scraps and $9 right?
I guess I will let the girls keep this one but I may just be building two more here soon. I love it.
