Unfinished Wood Boxes repurposed
The second installment of repurposed bedroom furniture…
Two wood storage boxes purch online at Joann.com – $30 ea with coupon TTL w/shipping $60
Four glass blocks used for bases (2 per base) – purchased at Lowes – $5 ea
Total for both night stands: $80
I couldn’t find (quickly) night stands that coordinated with the headboard I made. So having previously made, and set free, two side tables using these wood storage boxes I thought I’d try it again.
|Plain box prior to staining|
1. I stained the boxes
|1st Stain – A penetrating stain|
|Taped off design|
|2nd Stain – Result after 1st application of Gel Stain|
|Result after 2nd application of Gel Stain|
Design decision: I glued two glass blocks together with GE Silicone II clear. I decided that the flat front of the block took away from the design on the front of the box vs the side of the blocks showing straight lines. I glued the glass blocks to the box with GE Silicone II clear glue.
