DIY Farmhouse Nightstand

"This farmhouse nightstand is giving DIY a new name"

I always love sharing new projects, and even more than that I love partnering with other great builders to present those projects, and today I get to partner up with Huckleberry Ridge Furniture for the second time and I'm super excited to show you why! Farmhouse NightstandA while back we partnered together on the Farmhouse X Desk and it was a hit. I mean just look at it, why wouldn't it be? I completely fell in love with this desk and now I have something else to drool over.Farmhouse X Desk

So we are back again, with a vengeance! Ok, maybe that was too much; but we are back again with another awesome 3D plan, a Farmhouse Nightstand; or side table, if you prefer, and we hope you enjoy! It's giving me Joanna Gaines Vibes. Farmhouse Nightstand Plans

 Now let's get to it.

Step 1: Attach the 2x4 legs (28") to the 1x2 (16") stretchers using a drill and Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 3/4" setting, with 1 1/4" Pocket Hole Screws to attach along with wood glue. The bottom 1x2 should be raised 3" from the ground. Repeat step for the other side of the farmhouse nightstand.

Step 2: Using a table saw, rip a 1x10 board down to 8" width. This will allow it to fit behind the assembled farmhouse nightstand side.  Then attach the 1x8 piece to the assembled side using a drill and Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 3/4" setting, with 1 1/4" Pocket Hole Screws to attach along with wood glue

Pocket holes should be drilled on the sides of the 1x8 and drilled into the 2x4. Repeat this step for the other side of the farmhouse nightstand.

Step 6: Attach one (18") 1x2 to the back of the inner farmhouse nightstand frame using  wood glue and wood screws. This 1x2 should be flush with the bottom of the 1x8. Then attach the two (20") 1x2s to the left and right side of the farmhouse nightstand  using  wood glue and wood screws

These 1x2s will serve as the supports for the drawer. If you'd rather use drawer slides, skip this step and adjust drawer size as needed.

Step 7: Now begin attaching the five (23") 1x4s to the bottom 1x2s using  1 1/4" brad nails. Use your bandsaw to notch out the corners of the left and right 1x4 and leave spacing in between each board for a planked look.

Place the 1x4s out before nailing them down. Spacing should approximately about 7/8" between each board.

Step 11: Attach the front of the drawer using the pre-drilled pocket holes  1 1/4" Pocket Hole Screws to attach along with wood glue

Once the drawer is assembled, it should slide right in on the 1x2s on the farmhouse nightstand.

Step 12: Begin adding the X braces to the nightstand using a brad nailer. Attach the (21.5") 2x2s first and then the remaining (11") 2x2s. It may be wise to measure the 2x2s to your already assembled nightstand first before making cuts for the best fit.

Step 13: Now this is the fun part! Finish off your nightstand with the color of your choice! Michael and Sara used Walnut Stain with matte polycrylic for the top and "Creamy" by Sherwin Williams for the bottom.

And don't forget a cool drawer pull for the front drawer.
