I wouldn’t necessarily call myself an industrial furniture kind of girl, but this vintage metal cabinet makeover with hairpin legs may have converted me.

My mind instantly flashed to a bunch of industrial vintage metal cabinets that I had found over the years at the thrift store, stashed in my garage because I never knew what to do with them (other than stacking them up and holding hubby’s DVD collection).

Pete showed me one of his vintage metal cabinets that he had converted into an industrial furniture end table with hairpin legs.

Instantly, I shouted, “Oooh! I want to do that!”

I’d had a couple vintage metal cabinets on which I could replicate the same look, and I couldn’t wait to try!

Now……I’m not one to “steal” or even “borrow” project ideas from others because I love for my projects to be original….(You know how we bloggers do).

But Pete solved my problem of what to do with this industrial vintage metal cabinet that was just sitting in my garage, taking up space.
