File cabinet nightstand – Everybody when they think of crafts or DIY, they surely associate it with creating something new from nothing, using different materials or everyday products to create a piece of furniture or a decoration item. Well, not the key is always to create something new, but surely, we will have the possibility of rescuing some ancient relic that will be great in our bedroom.

At first glance it may seem like a complicated task but if we think about it carefully, we will see that it is not so difficult. There is a multitude of places where we can find an old bedside table, such as second-hand flea markets, abandoned buildings or we can even rescue our grandmother’s bedside table.
Once we have made our old file cabinet nightstand it is time to get down to work. First, we will have to clean the furniture carefully, ensuring that there is no piece of wood or stains, for this we can find a spatula or sandpaper very useful. Then it is advisable to cover the fissures with putty or natural wax. In this step we can also act with freedom, leaving some fissures to give the nightstand a romantic or total Shabby Chic look.
