This Mainstays Nightstand has the clean lines and Espresso color that made it ideal to add to our bedroom. It comes with easy, step by step instructions for us Weekend DIYers. All you need are 3 tools: Two screwdrivers and a hammer.
It was simple to put all the boards (A through F) together with its "cam-lock" system to hold everything in place. Screw in the cam bolts, drop in the cam locks, insert the wooden dowels (I did this by hand), assemble then tighten the locks, brackets and screws. I left the back panel (G) to nail on at the end. To make this go a little bit faster:
1. Allow yourself plenty of room to spread out.
2. Open and unpack your box. Check that you have each piece you need and take this time to divide your cam bolts, locks, dowels, brackets and screws between the different boards. It will save you "hunting" for them after you start.
3. Work on a padded surface. I used a thick towel over carpeting. This protected the boards themselves and it also kept my tools within easy reach.
Half an hour later, I had my own brand new, pretty impressive nightstand!
