Easy DIY Bedside Table Plans | Cane Boho Nightstand

Want a trendy cane boho nightstand, but don’t want to pay the big prices? Build it yourself with these free easy DIY bedside table plans.

Thank you to Kreg for this DIY bedside table plans project! All opinions are entirely my own. This post also contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t recommend wholeheartedly. Read my full disclosure here.

A few weeks ago we shared this DIY cane headboard that we built for Quinn’s room as we get our house ready for the short-term rental conversion that we have planned. We added a Queen sized bed along with the new headboard and it looks so great.

But the small stump table that I moved into the room from our modern boho office, just wasn’t working. What we really needed in the space was a bedside table with storage for her books that we keep beside her bed for storytime at night.

So what better excuse to build a matching cane boho nightstand! (As if we need an excuse to build more furniture).

Kreg’s 720PRO Pocket Hole Jig

If you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know that we are big fans of the Kreg pocket hole system. We’ve built so many projects using our K5 Pocket Hole Jig, we even have a super detailed guide and video about how to use it that you can check out here.

But in 2021 Kreg released brand new pocket hole systems that are replacing the K4 and K5, and the upgrades are pretty freakin’ awesome.

The new 720PRO (which we were using for this DIY cane headboard) and the 520PRO (which replaced the smaller K4 system) were improved a ton, the most noticeable change being that they are easier to set up and use – score.

My favorite new feature of 720PRO and 520PRO is the clamp that you don’t have to adjust anymore. You should clamp it down and it automatically adjusts to match the thickness of your wood, so cool, right?

Pocket hole joinery is definitely one of the easiest ways to join wood in woodworking projects. It’s our favorite hidden weapon for beginning woodworkers!

Want to learn more? I wrote a super detailed guide & created a video all about how to set up your Kreg 720PRO Pocket Hole and use it, so be sure to check that out too!

We teamed up with our friends Kreg again for these DIY bedside table plans and share them online for free, which are now available on!

If you’ve done any research on cane furniture, you’ll know that they are SOOOO expensive to buy from trendy retailers (like this one that is nearly $600 or this one that is almost $400). We were able to build this DIY bedside table on a budget.
