DIY bedside table – An adjustable table adds functionality to your bedroom. The table replaces a traditional bedside table and serves multiple purposes in the room. Keep the table low when you use it as a nightstand, but raise its height to create a small table for writing, reading or working. By using adjustable table legs, the project is also suitable for those with few woodworking skills. Legs adjust up and down for regular use.
DIY bedside table ideas, sand a 2-by-24-by-24-inch wood slab with coarse slip paper. Rub sandpaper over the wood, after the natural grain. The board acts as the top for your nightstand table. Use the rough sandpaper to remove defects and marks on the wood. Rub fine slippers over wooden slabs, again after the natural grain. The rough sandpaper leaves a rough texture, but the fine slip makes it smoother. Continue rubbing the wood with sandpaper until it feels smooth. Dip a foam brush into the wood stain and wipe the excess along the edge of the jar. Wipe the brush over wood, apply a smooth layer. After a few minutes pass, rub an old cloth over the top, which removes all stains the wood does not absorb. Repeat steps 1 to 3 on the underside of the board.
Then to DIY bedside table ideas, measure 2 inches in from the corner of the board and place an adjustable metal worktop on the wood. The leg should have a small edge that runs around the upper part of the leg. This edge has four holes for screws. Sink a 1 1/2 inch wooden screw through the rim and in the table. Sink three more screws through the table leg and in the table. Tighten each screw until the head of the screw is flat with the edge around the leg. The bottom of each leg moves upside down, which allows you to adjust the height of the table when needed. Close the table so that it sits on the legs. Tips and warnings, hand-woven legs are another option that you can find at the construction store. A tissue fixed the legs moves each one up and down. If you do not like the look of wood, jump staining steps and paint wood instead.
