several months ago, my dad gave me some old barn wood he had laying around (he knows me well!). i’ve been stowing them, just waiting for project inspiration to strike. and then it hit me- hairpin legs! i’ve been needing two skinny tables, one for under a mirror in our guest room (above) and one to use as a side table beside our sofa (below).
side note: see the it is well with my soul diy here!
this small version is the perfect size for right beside our sofa. i’m not going to lie, with baby bear around this table usually remains empty, but this is the way i would style it if tiny hands weren’t grabbing at all the things all the time. haha!
it was really easy to attach the legs. first, i marked on the big wooden boards where i needed them cut and had david size them down using a table saw. for such a small project though, i could have easily used a utility hand saw (girl power!).
i ordered the hair pin legs from hairpinlegs.com and they arrived quickly and in perfect condition. all i had to do was attach them using 3 small screws (per leg). using a power screwdriver was a must for this step.
even though my boards were weathered and warped slightly they are even and very sturdy. the perfect addition, yes?!
