Hairpin Leg Desk

4 Materials
3 Hours

Hey Hometalk! You're going to love this one! This desk build is honestly so super easy and a great way to have an awesome new desk. Seriously, this is so simple. All you need is a plank of wood of your choice (live edge is super trendy right now), and some hair pin legs. (Also some wood stain, screws, and a top coat)

Here's a photo of the table top I used (post stain).

And here you can see the legs I will use.

I used 8 of these legs, and screwed them in- that's it!

The simplicity of the build allows for so much space!

It could also be used as a dining table, or both- whatever you decide!

    I can't tell where the legs are placed. Can you tell me?

      Sorry for the late response. We placed them on all four corners. Then we placed four more on the middle. All equal distances. Creating three perfect squares.

    Looks like you used 8 legs not 6 or am I missing something?
