You can built a nightstand, easily; as soon as you have the materials. What you basically need are:
- 2 x 40*40 cm raw wood platforms
- 2 x 20*40 cm raw wood platforms
- 2 x wood handrails (they can be cut into 2 pieces and used as 4 legs
- 4 x corner fittings
- Wood glue
It’is really simple. All you need is to have these materials and glue them together. You may use After that, you put the corner fittings inside and screw them. You can use it as non painted, raw; or you can paint it as you like. Here, it is used as it originally is. See, you don’t need to buy a nightstand; you can easily built one. All you need is to visit a construction market.
Now, if you think you prefer it to be painted, you can use mix black and white and have a cook grey. Paint it twice and wait for a couple of hours between layers. Be patient. This takes time. After that, you can distress your furniture and make it look even cooler. You need to be patient for that phase as well. First, you need to be sure that your piece is completely dried. Then, rub it with sandpaper. Improvize it; rub it one corner, then one border, than another… Do not over work it. You may want to wait a little. A day after, take another look, rub it again. When you decide it’s over, you can varnish it.
Well, you can do this too, if you want to. You don’t need to know every detail about woodwork; just decide, grab some material and give it a try.
