DIY Hack - hairpin leg console table
With the baby arriving in May we're having to find more creative space saving ideas to make the best of our little London flat. This super easy console table came about as I needed something slim but tall enough to cover a radiator and couldn't find anything with the right dimensions. It was so easy to do though and saved me a tonne of money. I'm now trying to think of what else I can attach hairpin legs to!
Things you'll need...
- One piece of timber. Ours measured 110cm by 23cm and I stained it using Briwax in Walnut
- Hair pin legs. We only used two to keep the table slim and flush to the wall. We got ours from here and they measure 86cm high.
- A screw driver and screws (if not included with the legs)
- Wall brackets or Command picture hanging strips if you want it flush to the wall like ours.
This DIY hack is really as easy as it gets. Simply mark out where you want to attached the legs and screw them in to place.
Then measure the centre point of the back edge of the table and attach to the wall using brackets or self adhesive Command strips. These are really strong and don't mark the walls at all. I use them to hang all of my pictures and mirrors now.
It's such a great way to add a mid-century modern feel to your home. Just change up the height of the legs to create a bench, coffee table or even a kitchen table.
