A simple bedside table with book storage especially for kids that love to read at bed time. And no bottomless drawers for Mom to clean up.
Follow the steps below to complete this project.
Use 1x6 board -
Cut 2 shelves @ 22"
Cut 2 sides @ 20"
Make pocket holes as shown in picture
Attach the shelves to the sides at 2″ from the bottom and 5.5″ from the top using glue and pocket hole screws. Ensure that the pocket holes for the top are on the outside os the side boards.
attach 1x2 @ 22" to the front leaving a 3/4" gap on the bottom. I used a scrap 1 x3 board for the spacing.
Attach the 1/4" plywood cut at 23.5″ x 18″ on the back between the two shelves to create a backing for the book storage area. Use glue and finish nails
Attach 1 x 8 cut at 25.5" as the table top using the pocket hole screws. Leave an inch over hang on all four sides.
Fill all the holes with wood putty, sand, prime and paint the table. I also added a pattern on the top to make it a little colorful.
