Wife and I got tired of falling to the ground in the middle of the night, so I decided to build us a new bed… This is the first bed that I have built, more to come in the future for my two daughters…Matching night stand to complete the bed…..hope you like!!

I like the door you made for the nightstand. The latch is neat. Did you consider making it operable with the knob like THIS? The two hinges look a little too big, but I like the overall design.

Thanks everyone…..The finish was accomplished by a friend of mine that builds a lot of primitive furniture.. He paints with a flat paint then sands and sprays the entire project with a dark stain…He has showed me how to do this, but i dont have the set up to accomplish this effectively…I finished the night stand and the shelf in my other project, but decided not to finish any more until i get a better set up in the shop.. (Didnt like the mess it left behind with the cheap electric sprayer i had)

Chris, i’m glad you showed me the article, i would of never thought of latching a door like this. This may be something i try in the future… Have you used this technique? if so how did it turn out for you?
