Turn one end table into two DIY nightstands

Our youngest had been without a nightstand for all of her three and a half years, and she felt she really needed one for her lamp (which isn’t plugged in) and her light-up spinning Elsa jewellery box (which blasts “Let It Go” when we’re all trying to sleep).

I’ve been on the nightstand hunt before, and it’s never an easy one. New nightstands are surprisingly overpriced and it’s next to impossible to snag a matching set at a yard sale or thrift store. (If you see a set, buy it — seriously.) And so, she waited.

Then we scored a curvy-but-solid wooden end table from a family member and I knew exactly what we’d do with it: Double it! No, wait .. halve it?
