Side-Projects, Stuff I Did

Completed – Hairpin Leg Side Table

The hairpin legs I ordered from modernlegs.com finally arrived at my place yesterday afternoon! They don’t ship outside the USA and I had to get someone to cart it home all the way back from the states.

Proceeded to test-fit and assemble them and have pretty mixed feelings about the tables actually. They look a bit top heavy but definitely work as a side table placed beside a couch or armchair. Placed beside existing furniture, I think I like it.
