Gray-Stained Farmhouse Nightstand

You guys!! If you follow me on instagram you have already heard the news!! But this past weekend I sold my very first custom bedroom set! The cute lady who wanted the set, wanted a nightstand so I had the opportunity to build this darling gray-stained farmhouse nightstand!

I found the plans on Ana White and switched them up a little bit. I love how it turned out and am thinking I may need to build a couple for my bedroom! The drawer is nice and big and slides out pretty easily and I love the bottom shelf too – some cute baskets would go great there!

If you are thinking about building this dresser, let me give you a few tips – because the cut list on Ana’s site is wrong – and I wanted to pull my hair out on such a simple project – because it took sooo much longer and I had to recut and cut new pieces. Here is a correct cut list!

2 – 1×12 @ 8 3/4″ (Sides)
4 – 1×2 @ 11 1/4″ (Side Trim – needs to be width of your 1x12s)
4 – 2×2 @ 26 1/4″ (Legs)
2 – 2×2 @ 11 1/4″ (Side Stretchers, same width as your 1x12s)
4 – 2×2 @ 23″ (Front/Back Trim)
1 – 1/4″ Plywood or paneling or other sheet goods @ 26″ x 8 1/2″ (back, optional)
3 – 1×2 @ 11 1/4″ (Top Supports)
3 – 1×6 @ 28″ (Top)
2 – 1×6 @ 22 3/4″ (Front and Back of Drawer)
2 – 1×6 @ 11 1/4″ (Width of 1×12 – Sides of Drawers)
1 – 1×12 @ 21 1/4″ (Bottom of drawer)
1 – 1×12 @ 26″ (Bottom Shelf)
2 – 1×2 @ 23″ (Bottom Shelf Trim

You can find all the info to build it here!

Also – add a couple screws to the back to act as a drawer stop.

Don’t you think a lamp would look awesome on this table? Me too!!
