10. DIY Nightstand with Bun Feet
Sometimes, it is quite hard to find a nightstand that supplements your bed as well as meeting your style well. The best way to get a perfect nightstand for your bedroom is by making it yourself. Now get the materials, roll up your sleeves, and let’s get started.
To make this nightstand, you’re going to need some boards, bun feet, clove molding, drawer pull, wood glue, brad nails, and pocket hole screws.
First, cut the boards and drill pocket holes on each board. Use wood glue when assembling them, then reinforce the joints using screws. Make sure that the pocket holes are located under the nightstand so they will be hidden.
Once the side pieces and bottom piece have been assembled, you can attach the top supports and drawer slides. You might need a level to make sure that they are flush. After assembling all the pieces, including the bun feet, you can go to the easiest part – adding the moldings. And for the finishing touch, fill all holes with wood filler and stain the nightstand thoroughly for a perfect rustic look.
