The majority of the frame is made out of white pine, and the shelves are made out of MDF. I sprayed it with my HVLP with a primer and then did a couple of finish coats (sanded lightly) in between. It’s not quite as smooth as the picture looks but it turned out pretty good.

This looks great! My wife found this just googling for nursery side tables. Can I ask what kind of joinrery you used, especially at the apron to the wider face of the legs?

And would you mind sharing the dimensions of the lumber and cuts?

Glad you liked it Vududude. I used pocket hole joinery throughout. The top is 14” x 18”, and it’s 24” tall.
