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!

    I’m working on this. When installing the tie-ins with 2.5 inch kreg screws the screws come out the side of the legs! This happened to about half of them. The screws are just too long, but there does not seem to be a 2 inch kreg screw? Is there a way to use regular wood screws?

    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!!!!!

    Great looking nightstand! I’m thinking I might have to get myself a Kreg Jig.

    These turned out great! And not too bad for the price either. I have been needing some nightstands for my bedroom and these look perfect! 🙂
