Well that's what you should expect when you set your container's layout manager to null. The easiest way to 'repair' it is to use an actual
layout manager.

If you want the layout manager to remain null, which I don't recommend, you have to manually do what layout managers do. This includes setting a preferred size for your container and the bounds (size and position) of your buttons.
 
Hey, sticks and stones baby. And maybe a wee mention of my stuff:
