Hair Pin Legs

I’m back from the dentist — lets hope that the antibiotics work (even though through some strange-backwards-dentist-logic, he says that if the antibiotics help, then that is actually bad…..whatever, I just want my face to stop hurting. Now.)

Ignoring that situation as best I can…..I wanted to share with you a great site for buying hairpin legs (prices starting at $12 each).  I think these table legs (whether in stainless or raw steel, two rod or three rod)  are perfect for making hip but budget friendly garden furniture.  They are really strong, really inexpensive and really stylish.  three screws attach each to your choosen table top — what could be easier?

So I am thinking the coolest thing that I might do would be to have a hand at  making that concrete table top and using these for legs.   What do you think?  Do you have a project you can use these legs for?  No?  Let me give you some inspiration….

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    These are great ideas! We have tried a few similar projects ourselves and have found another great source for our hairpin legs.

    They sell hairpin legs that look great, cost less and ship fast! We have used them on a number of occasions and have been pleased!
