This night stand project actually took me about 10 minutes from start to finish, no joke. I measured the night stand and cut the molding a little bit bigger. Then I used a nail gun to finish nail the boards to the table base. I didn't use glue or caulking in case I wanted to reuse the boards some other time and the table base was the color I already wanted so no painting was necessary.
Tomorrow I'll be attempting to make this pottery barn bench for the end of the bed. At hopefully a very small fraction of the price.
