This handsome little nightstand was made out of an old bathroom cabinet, found in forlorn circumstances. With some clean-up, repair, paint, and the addition of shop scrap drawer fronts, a laminated wood top, and four little pallet-wood feet, I ended up with a beautiful bedside companion for less than ten bucks in materials. Scrap on!
Built for/at the ReBuilding Exchange, Chicago, IL.
