Hairpin Leg DIY Nightstand by Elyse

Here at Modern Legs we offer lots of style and size options for our hairpin legs. And this table is a great example of why we do that. This is a beautiful night stand made by Elyse.

As you can see the hairpin legs are much shorter than the standard 16” coffee table size to accommodate the greater height of the wooden tabletop. One nice thing about hairpin legs is that it raises the table to just the height you need while still providing room underneath. This provides foot room for coffee tables and dining room tables, it makes room for storage underneath, and provides more light and airflow for an open feel to the room.

This nightstand combines round and square angles well and will be a very functional stand for years to come. Elyse did a great job of matching the finished piece to the wood bed in the room–both are on short legs.

Our metal hairpin legs come in even measurements from 4” to 30” to provide you with metal legs that will work well on your next table build. We also offer them in multiple diameters to best meet your table load and if there’s a project you have in mind that would be best suited to custom sizes, drop us a line and let us know what you have in mind; chances are we’ll be able to accommodate. We look forward to seeing what you come up with!
