Oop’s I did it Again…. (DIY Tip)

Or I am about to! Remember when I made that WAY to tall coffee table? Well I am going to try again.

Instead of trying to bid on legs from Ebay (they’re all going for around $40-60 bucks). And that doesn’t include shipping. For some reason while I’m bidding on ebay – the shipping costs magically don’t seem to matter while trying to win the ‘fill-in-the-blank-probably-mid-century-modern-related’ item. I also end up with something that’s not exactly the right size or they are wobbly so – buying REAL vintage for table legs is not the route I’m going for.

I researched for an alternative. And I found this great website Modern Legs,ย and there are so many more options of a ‘modern leg’ on this site. There are tapered, (my new favorite), hair pin, bench supports and custom flatbar legs. It’s awesome! Aren’t these a beauty?

Here is the iron tapered leg, I am so into. Visualize a poplar wood coffee table with these legs, resting on my new (yet-to-be-purchased) faux cow hide rug…. ย with a small black dog trying to creep on my table, but she can’t reach it…. all my stars would be aligned.
