Hairpin Legs for Furniture DIY
Hairpin Legs DIY: You can turn almost anything from windows, shutters, crates and even snowboards into a piece of furniture really easily by just adding some hairpin legs. I’ve used hairpin legs a couple of times myself and will no doubt be using them again.
One of the great things about hairpin legs is that they come in lots of different heights and colours, so you can make a everything from a low bench to a high console table. I also think the legs are really versatile in that they look great with a lot of the current interior trends such as mid century modern, industrial and the rustic farmhouse look.
