I wrapped up Memorial Day weekend by finishing these night stands for our master bedroom. The material is pine & I used the building plans from the Ana-White website. I came up with a different door design then what the plans called for. The lesson I learned with this project is always buy the door hinges first, then build the cabinet & door. I had difficulty finding a inset cabinet hinge locally that I liked, and unfortunately the design of the door did not allow enough room for a mortise. I traveled 45 minutes to the closest Home Depot & bought oil rubbed bronze 2” pin hinges which worked great. My wife picked out the door handles, and she also helped painted the frames. The table tops have 1 coat of stain and 3 coats of satin poly. After I brought the stands into our bedroom, I discovered the doors did not want to stay closed, so I plan on adding hardware to prevent the doors from opening on their own. The stands look really nice in our bedroom, and I’m happy with the results.
