Rustic nightstands – Rustic furniture is warm and natural, so it is a style that many people like. Because often it is solid wood, rustic furniture can have a hefty price tag. You do not have to spend much to have rustic furniture, however. You may already have what you need.
Build rustic nightstands, Select a tree trunk. If you are not planning to take a tree in your yard, see if you can find one in a lumberyard. The trunk section should be about a foot in diameter. Using a chain saw carefully cut a trunk section that is 18 inches tall. Place the stump in a cool, dry place, such as a barn or garage. Let dry stump for a month. Remove any loose bark with your fingers. Use a chisel and a hammer to break the hard crust removed. Arena on the sides of the strain, with sandpaper medium grain. Sand the top and bottom of the stump with sandpaper fine grain. The surface should be smooth to the touch.
Rub all the rustic nightstands with a damp, lint free cloth. This will clean the dust left from sanding. Continue cleaning the stump until the finger is clean when it runs through the stump. Turn the stump to stump the bottom is on top. Measure and mark four equally spaced locations around the bottom of the stump. These are the places where the legs are made. Drill a hole at each marked location. These holes will be easier to screw on the feet of furniture and keep the stump is cracking. Furniture screw short legs into the holes. Furniture legs are available online and at hardware stores. Flip the rustic nightstands so that the top is showing.
