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?

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. The crafty gals cut and stained wood pieces in varying shades to have the look of pricey tile and then glued them to the drawer fronts. Thanks to IKEA’s $35 nightstands, it cost less than $100 for the PAIR of stylin’ nightstands.
For her “Big Guy’s” thirtieth birthday, Dana from Crafted Niche surprised him with a nightstand she picked up off of Craigslist and refabbed with some cool number art. Dana used a projector to trace on the number design and then painted it in with homemade chalk paint. 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!
