Wire Basket Nightstand

You guys….$42 is all this nightstand cost me to make!! And would you believe, I made it out of a wire hamper basket from Target?? Yep! On top of that…the whole thing took me about 20 minutes 🙂 Feeling pretty good right about now!

I found this wire hamper basket at Target for $24, it came with a cloth insert which I removed.

I was going to build a tabletop out of 2x4s until I found this stain grade pine project round at Lowe’s. It was the perfect size, 2 foot, so I took a shot. They also had a couple different sizes for different size projects.

I laid the wood round on the floor, turned the basket upside down and centered it on the wood round and attached the basket with wood joiners by tapping the wood joiners with a hammer.

Next, I stained the wood round with Minwax wood stain in dark walnut. I know, I know…it’s my favorite stain color…what can I say 🙂 I just put on one coat with a cloth, wiping off the excess so the wood grain shows through.
