After building her daughter a beautiful panel bed fit for a princess, Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic built two matching nightstands that are every bit as lovely! Whitney loved the design of a nightstand she’d previously built for her son’s room and teamed up with Ana White to put a “girly” spin on the plans. There is no question in my mind why Whitney adores this design so much – hidden storage! Plus, it sure sweetens the deal that they only cost $60 each to build!
Were you just floored with the wood and metal pipe bed I shared this morning from Jaime at That’s My Letter? Of course, an industrial style bed needs an equally rugged yet handsome nightstand, and Jaime again teamed up with Ana White to build this masculine bedside table that offers plenty of storage space. Jaime’s expense for this DIY nightstand was very minimal since she used scraps, but even if you had to buy everything, $100 for a stylin’ solid wood nightstand with two drawers is a deal!
Monica and Jess of East Coast Creative were inspired by one of the amazing projects in their Creating with the Stars competition last March to transform an unfinished wood nightstand from IKEA into a truly unique and eye-catching piece.

While the outside is pretty amazing, Dana also customized the inside with dividers to hold the Big Guy’s beloved sunglass collection. She definitely gets some awesome girlfriend bragging rights for this gift!
Mari from Crab + Fish wanted a gilded bedside table for her master bedroom and realized she already owned a nightstand with a very similar shape to one she’d been admiring from Urban Outfitters. With some gold leaf, Mari transformed the childhood furniture into one she can now love as an adult. How glam is this?
Jaime from That’s My Letter couldn’t stop at building her daughter just a new headboard. Of course, a fancy new headboard necessitates a fancy new nightstand!
