Weekend Project: The $30 DIY Nightstand

Matsutake

Have you guys met Katie Steuernagle? She's a contributor over at Ohdeedoh and makes all sorts of awesome things. Recently she whipped up this night stand out of a few pieces of wood, some strips of vinyl and a concrete form. Yeah, she's pretty much the coolest — check out how she did it!

The inside of this table is made from a few pieces of wood and a concrete pillar. Not exactly sexy bedroom talk. The outside however received a shiny paint job and these oh-so-pretty strips of vinyl. They're simply tacked on and belted in the middle to give it its high style looks.

Our favorite part about this night stand or side table (depending on what room you place it in) is its size. So many night stands these days are meant to blend with platform beds more so than normal bed arrangements that have a traditional box spring and are higher than 6" off the floor. It's a great height with a good amount of space, perfect for holing fresh flower, a lamp and your kindle while having room for an alarm clock!

Check out the full tutorial over at her personal blog Matsutake and be on the lookout for more great things from Katie over at Ohdeedoh!
