DIY Mini Rustic Laptop Stand or Side Table!
If you guys are to know just one thing about me, it's that I LOVE to create things. So today I'm sharing my latest one with you all!
I originally envisioned this to be a laptop stand that I could use on the couch or in bed to improve posture, but it looks SO much better as a bedside table/makeup station! The added bonus of using it for makeup is that there is a TON of space underneath to store makeup I don't use on the daily!
So this is actually really easy to make, and I'm going to give you a quick step-by-step to show you how you can make your own!
YOU WILL NEED:
-three 7" wide 18" long wood boards (I used timber, but poplar or any other wood of your choice will work)
-two 5" wide 18" long wood boards
-four small brackets
-two long brackets
-four corner brackets
-two handles (of your choice- get creative with this! So much to choose from to add a personal twist!)
-spray paint, or any other kind of paint you'd like to use (this is for the corner brackets)
-silver screws (50 to be safe)
-drill and bits
-screw gun and bits
Paint the brackets (I left the long ones plain, as I put them underneath, but if you'd like them in view, paint them!)
Place one big board in the middle with two of the smaller boards on either side- this will be the top of the table.
Fasten in place with the longer brackets.
measure other boards to ensure the lengths match.
If they don't, mark and cut the boards that need shortening.
sand the edges that will be exposed.
Drill end pieces of wood into place on the ends of the three wider pieces you put together earlier.
Now place the corner brackets where you want them, and drill.
Measure the centre of the two side pieces of wood and mark.
Then put handles in place and drill.
AND YOU'RE DONE!
An optional step is to stain or paint the wood, but I preferred mine to be plain wood.
