    you can try tooth picks in the screw holes...they fill up the hole, and make the screws grab.

    If you insert wooden toothpicks into the hole to fill up some of the space you should be able to use the screws again.

    If the screw holes go all the way through or can be made to do so not obviosly, use a bolt and nut with a big washer on both sides to protect the holes from further damage

    You can get a 1/4" wood dowel and a drill bit the same size, drill out the screw holes, glue pieces of the dowel and drive them into the holes with a hammer. Let them dry and attach the leg with new screws.
