DIY Hairpin Leg Table Anyone Can Create

Are you looking for a table with an “industrial and minimal” look? Or maybe you are looking for a really easy way to create your own DIY table. This is definitely the easiest DIY furniture piece I’ve ever created. I love the look the hairpin legs give my new desk. I can’t wait to share how easy the DIY hairpin leg desk and my new office space was to create. Seriously, anyone can make this!

I’ve always wanted my own dedicated “office space.” Rather than hanging out and blogging on the kitchen bar or the dining room table, I wanted my own DIY office table.

I also wanted my new DIY office table to have an “industrial” feel.

I can’t weld or bend metal, so I was pumped when I figured out how easy it was to create this DIY table with hairpin legs.

Speaking of hairpin legs, the lovely folks at Crates and Pallet were generous enough to supply me with a set of their own 28″ black steel 2 rod hairpin legs.

The DIY table legs were super affordable and easy to install.

Materials for your DIY hairpin leg table

  • Hairpin legs– the legs come in all sizes. I’ve chosen 28″ because that is a good height for a table.
  • Wood slab
  • Wood screws
  • Drill

For the wood slab, I had a wood table top that was previously used for THIS table. Do you remember my very controversial table? Here’s a picture below of what it used to look like.

As much as my husband was thrilled with this table (NOT), he asked me to please refrain from bringing it in our new home when we moved. I can’t imagine why 🙂

The dimensions of the old table top were a little big for the size I wanted my DIY office desk to be. We used a radial saw and ripped the wood slab to make it 22″ deep. We kept the length at 6′.

Now it’s time to install the hairpin legs!

This was the easy part. All I did was flip the wood slab on it’s top and position the 4 hairpin legs where I wanted them.

All it took was a few screws and now I had a fully functional and industrial style office table.

  1. Super groovy desk! Easy, pretty and so affordable is a win in my book. Thank you for visiting You’re The Star this week. I would like to ask permission to link to this post to show how these legs can be used for the clock table. It is a local class I am teaching. Thank you again for partying at #yts
