Then you need to cut out the walls and the bottom for the nightstand in the bathroom. All parts are fastened with screws so that the heads from the screws do not protrude above the surface of the parts, so that they can be carefully hidden with putty. Doors for furniture in the bathroom are not needed yet. You need to cut out all the parts in turn and fasten them together. First of all, for the nightstand in the bathroom, only three main walls are cut out and collected, and then other parts are added to them. Each new cut out detail must first be tried on the place of fasteners.
Assembled furniture in the bathroom you need to try on the intended place. The workpiece must not be unsteady. The curbstone should be level, without oblique angles. Since the bedside table is adjacent to the washbasin of the bathroom, and behind it the siphon will be attached to it, the rear wall does not need to be made. Instead, you can use furniture corners. Most often it will be enough to use two corners under the countertop. They are attached with short screws.
The next step is puttying the structure. To make furniture in the bathroom look beautiful, you need to make the surface as smooth as possible, especially if the chipboard was used. In the case when old furniture is used to create new furniture in the bathroom, only the edges and joints can be puttyped.
Sanding paper is used for sanding places where plaster is not used. Sanding is carried out for the purpose of more qualitative further painting of furniture. After sanding, you can start the painting process. You can use a spray gun or a soft brush. If putty applied to large areas, then it is necessary to apply an additional primer to the surface and then paint. You can use a lacquer with pigmentation, then the furniture will have a beautiful noble appearance of a real tree. When the paint dries, you can attach the doors of the nightstand and put the furniture in its place.

Next is to build glass shelves. They can be bought ready-made or ordered in their own sizes in workshops. This piece of furniture can be built independently. First, all measurements are taken, after which they are applied to the glass. Using a glass cutter, the shelf and glass sheets are cut out. With the help of a special circle for sharpening the edges are processed so that they become semicircular. Now you need to make shelves matte. To do this, the desired surface is poured with sand, and then it is rubbed with another glass. Sand if necessary pours. The procedure must be carried out until the surface has received the same dullness without any scratches. To make this action faster, you can use a nozzle on the drill. At low speed, the nozzle needs to grind the sand. It should be ensured that the glass does not overheat from friction, because with a significant temperature increase, it can crack.
After the glass is prepared, shelves from it must be secured in the bedside table with the help of special fasteners. The top glass can become a table top, and therefore it is additionally fixed with an adhesive tape. In the future, you can additionally decorate the bedside table at will.
