build your own hairpin leg tables via going home to roost (5)

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?!

a modern farmhouse (6)

this year, husband and i are determined to settle into a permanent homestead. we’re exhausted from hopping around the country and moving on average once a year (whew!), so this is our year. brevard will be our permanent  so it’s time to stop renting and start homesteading! lucky for us, my sister-in-law just married an incredibly talented leed certified contractor. woohoo! our options are simple: purchase and renovate or build from scratch.

though we haven’t made up our minds completely on which direction we’ll go, we can’t stop bookmarking the things we love, looking at house plans and browsing real estate. though we would need to reduce it’s size a bit, this modern farmhouse in chester, sc definitely tickles our fancy (that means, we love it!). designed by architect ken pursley, it’s the perfect mix of modern and farm. constructed to allow as much sunlight in as possible, it’s in my book absolutely perfect.
