We’ve officially lived in our place for almost 9 months. And let me tell you, time FLIES. I have so many ideas as far as decorating goes, and I’ve finally committed to tackling a few projects – one room at a time.
First up? The bedroom.
I bought a mid-century modern nightstand at Target (here’s some similar ones here, here and here). It sits on Fritz’s side of the bed, due to limited space on mine. So because I didn’t want to spend money on one for me, and because Fritz is tired of me reaching over him to grab my glass of water at night, I decided to make my own!
The project was super simple, and I love the way it turned out. Scroll below to see the step-by-step guide:
Easy Industrial Nightstand DIY
You will need:
- Wood Glue
- First, measure the area. I wanted my nightstand to take up the space between my bed and the wall with little to no space in between.
- Grab the wood you’ll be using. I’d recommend layering two pieces for a thicker, more sturdy nightstand. I picked mine up from Home Depot and went with plywood because it was more affordable. But the type of wood you use is completely up to you! Because we’re renting, I was okay with using a lower quality wood.
- Glue wood together with a reliable wood glue and let cure.
- Once the glue has dried, stain the wood with your preferred color.
- Attach brackets to shelf and drill into wall.
The finished product…
