Cabinet Style Farmhouse Nightstand with Drawer

Are you looking for the perfect nightstand to compliment your Farmhouse Bed?

I recently built this bedside table or nightstand for our guest room to match our DIY farmhouse bed.  I used a chunkier leg design to match the farmhouse bed legs, and sized the entire nightstand up so it is rightly proportionate to the bed.

The storage area is HUGE since the legs aren’t real 4x4s – perfect for storing extra blankets or even pillows!

This nightstand is a very easy build – I managed to tackle in just an afternoon – in between feeding a four month old baby, homeschooling a junior higher, and keeping a four year old busy.  

Drawer slides can be time consuming.  Since this is a nightstand in a guest room that will be rarely used, I thought using inexpensive and easy to cut metal angle could work for drawer slides –

We were suprised at how well this worked, and the drawer actually slides pretty good!  

We simply installed the metal angle in the drawer box, then sized the drawer box to fit in between the angle.  I also added the back kicker piece so the drawer won’t tip out on our guests.
