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!

Amanda from The Contractor Chronicles whipped this beautiful twin bed up for her son while her husband was away on a trip. It’s Amanda first build by herself and gave her some much needed confidence to pick up the power tools more often. Amanda followed plans from Ana White, making just a few changes along the way since she doesn’t have a Kreg Jig. I’d say this is pretty awesome for a first time build!
