Shanty Bedside Table

  • July 21, 2018


I love all of the Shanty2Chic projects, and have been following for quite a while. I found this table design, on the Shanty2Chic website, and fell in love with it. I just knew it was what I’d love to have, as my bedside table. It wasn’t a particularly hard build. The only thing that made it more challenging, was that I still haven’t bought clamps for my workshop. However, with extra muscle power, and the assistance of my son a couple of times, I was able to complete the job. It was a big reminder of why decent clamps would be helpful. Afterwards, I added a dark walnut stain, to match the rest of my current furnishings.
I am making a TOTAL guess, as to how long it took to make this table. If I could have worked on this, without interruptions, it probably could have been faster.
I am loving my new Shanty table!

  • Really nice job! We really like this one used as a side table! Did you modify the plans?

    • No modifications. I found this table on their Shanty 2 Chic website. Apparently it is a table they built several years ago. I fell in love with the design, and added details using moulding trim around the pedestal base. I just followed their clear instructions off of the website. Thank you! I’m very proud of this build myself!

    • Actually the only difference I just thought of, are the angles I cut for the feet. They were made out of 4x4s, and I had trouble cutting those angles with my miter saw, because I only have a regular 10” miter saw (not Ryobi brand). I am wanting to upgrade to the nice 12” Ryobi saw, but I have to wait on that. I was still able to get a 45 degree angle cut, but I ended up having to flip the 4x4 over, and cut through again, carefully matching the already cut line.

    • We really like this design, too! It's so unique for a bedside table. Glad to hear the 10" helped you out on this project! We love how it turned out!
