Reclaimed Wood Nightstands

Hey everyone!  I have to show you what I’ve been working on!


Love!  I found the Reclaimed Wood Nightstand plans over at Ana’s!  They are a perfect match for my son’s Reclaimed Wood Headboard that I built him!

I used the Kreg Jig for this build and it made things so much easier!  Kreg is my new BFF!

The Kreg Jig is a pocket hole system that eliminates the need for 15 hands while you predrill ;-)

and it drives the screws in at an angle making joints stronger!  I followed Ana’s directions for building the night stands with the Kreg Jig and it was so much easier than the predrilling I have done in the past!

Here are some pics of the building stages:)

Frames for the drawers


Ready for finish!  I used 1 coat of Minwax Dark Walnut stain and followed with Minwax Polycrylic.

For the final touch, I found these great pulls at Home Depot.  They weren’t cheap ($4.49 each) but I didn’t want to skimp on the hardware because these were the “perfect” touch;-)

I’m so glad I went with the hardware that I really wanted!  I love the way these turned out!

Where did I get that super cute lamp?  Oh… Wal-Mart for $9 (shhhhh)!  My son found some similar in the PBTeen catalog but that’s not in the budget (especially when I need 2;-)  I tried my luck at Wal-Mart and we are both happy!


Okay, here’s the run-down on cost:

$40 for lumber

$30 for hardware

I had the stain so that was free:)  $35 per night stand ~ I’ll take it!

***Stop by later and check out our 2nd video tutorial!***

Happy Monday to you all!

    Did you use drawer slides with these?

    My hubby made these for my daughter and they turned out awesome. I have to have some, so he is working on mine now. He is making them out of oak ( some wood we had) I can’t wait. Now I need a headboard to match. lol

    You are a very talented craftsman/woman. It is a true job to take raw lumber and make it into beautiful furniture. My hubby used to do these things before his back took that from him, and I occasionally helped finish–he never painted. To make stain and poly look that good takes work and patience. ACES!!!!!

    The nightstands look awesome! I’m just wondering if you used drawer slides?

  • Lynette of Rooted in Atascocita

    This is lovely! Pottery Barn is my favorite magazine for inspiration and you have done a great job of replicating one of their pieces! Keep up the craft work! Oh, and I found you from the Get Your Craft On Tuesday link at Today’s Creative Blog. XOXXO

    I LOVE using reclaimed wood. This turned out so great! I love the stain color – and the design and assembly is beautiful. I recently made an over the fridge crate out of salvaged wood to hold our cereal boxes, and I love it! I am always on they lookout for discarded wood…and now I would love to make a set of drawers like yours!

  • Nan @ Playful Decor

    I can’t believe you made that. Or I should say I can believe you made that and I never could! btw, I just opened a new blog party just for kids rooms if you have any posts you’d like to link up. Here’s the direct link for Tuesday’s Nursery (for any age rooms!)

    I look forward to seeing more things!

    Hobby Lobby has great hardware, in fact they have pulls that look just like these. And unlike the big box stores they frequently go on sale for 50% off, or you can use one of their amazing 40% off coupons.

    That looks fantastic! We just finished adding boy’s rooms to our houses. This nightstand would be perfect for their new rooms.
