40 Nifty Nightstands to DIY

Advertisements

If you are new to woodworking, we’ve got a nifty little project for you to start with: a nightstand! Not only is it super practical, but it will save you a lot of money too. If you walk into your favorite furniture store, nightstands can cost up to $1K, just for a single one! Keep in mind that most of us do want a pair of them, for the master suite bedroom. Then you also want nightstands for the kids’ bedrooms too.

This is a woodworking DIY that you can get done in a weekend’s time, or perhaps several weekends, if you can’t devote a full weekend to it. What is great about DIY-ing your nightstands is you can finish it in a wood stain that you prefer, whether that is something such as walnut, pine or cherry. Or you can paint it to match other wood furniture in the room.

We’ve found you 40 great projects to try. Whether you are a beginner or more advanced, there is something here, just for you. There are lots of different furniture styles too, from classic, modern, farmhouse style, rustic and even shabby chic. So take a look & be inspired to create something fantastic for your family!

So, let’s get started! Happy DIY-ing!
