A Favorite Nightstand Gets a Girly Twist

diy nightstand for a girls room

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!

Cottage Style Toddler Bed

RH Baby & Child inspired toddler bed

It’s hard to say who is more excited about Jen’s latest build over at The House of Wood – Jen who got to “play” with her new table saw or her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter who graduated to a “big girl” bed! Jen teamed up with the lovely Ana White again to build the sweet little cottage style bed that features a gentle curved design and turned legs. I love how the side rails offer all the comfort and security a little one needs and also add to the style of the piece. So pretty!

These would look so cute arranged on the wall together!
