DIY Nursery Side Table

I did a project, I did a project, I did a project, hey-hey-hey-hey!  Holy cow y'all, our house flip is mostly done!  I will be back later this week to share our finished garage room.  Get. Really. Excited!  Mack's room is my favorite room in our house.  So many sweet memories in there.  The only thing that drove me crazy in his room was that his books we not very accessible while I was sitting in the rocker. 

Look at that squishy baby, he is sitting still!  Those days are long behind us...  The side table we had in there was great before Mack started shot putting the lamp.  Then we only kept books on the table but they were always falling {or being thrown} off and that drove me crazy. 

 This is a super easy DIY that only cost me $15!  I knew I wanted to use a crate but I needed the table to be sturdy because of our little dustructo Mack. Most of the crates at Hobby Lobby and Home Depot are sturdy but they are too lightweight.  If you saw my {Chirstmas tree crate post} then you know that I found a bigger crate at JoAnns.  They have two different kinds so make sure you get the right one.

Nursery Side Table


Stain {I did a 50/50 combo of minawax jacobean & weathered oak}
Old Rags
Finishing Wax or polyurethane
4 Casters and Screws


1.  Stain your crate using an old rag.  You will need to wear gloves because staining between the slats gets a bit messy.

2.  Once your crate dries, seal it with wax or polyurethane. 

3.  Attach the casters and you're done!

I love this table because I can spin it towards me when we are reading books or when I don't want Mack to empty all of the contents.  :)

I'll be back to show you how this room turned out later this week!!!
