"A simplistic modern nightstand perfect for the bedroom"
The more I get into building, the more I'm discovering how much I really love the modern look, so I thought why not add some modern flare to my guest bedroom with this DIY Modern Nightstand.
Now let's get into it!
Step 1: Cut Wood to Size
Cut your wood down to size. Here is the cut list you'll need to build the modern nightstand.
- 4 - 1" dowels @ 19"
- 4 - 1" dowels @ 16 1/2"
- 4 - 1" dowels @ 5 1/4"
- 2 - 1x8s @ 17"
- 2 - 1x8s @ 6 1/4"
Step 2: Assemble the Modern Nightstand Top
Then attach the top (17") board. The pocket holes should be facing down when the nightstand top is sitting right side up.
I used my Kreg Right Angle Clamps to help me keep the boards secure while I screwed in the pocket hole screws.
Step 3: Assemble Modern Nightstand Base
The pocket holes on the bottom (16 1/2") dowel should be facing downward and the pocket holes on the top (16 1/2") dowel should be facing upward. You should now have two completed sides.
After attaching the middle dowels, I attached the other side of the nightstand to the assembled base.
Step 4: Attach Modern Nightstand Top to Base
Now that the base and the nightstand top are all assembled, its time to attach the two. I used 1 1/4" Brad Nails to attach the two together.
and that's a wrap folks. An easy $25 DIY Modern Nighstand. Let's take another look at this beauty.
This was the perfect little addition to my guest room. Hopefully my guest will love it just as much as I do.
