DIY Hairpin Leg Wooden Bench

I’ve been in love the the hairpin leg tables and benches lately.

I finally gave in and ordered some hairpin legs, I just couldn’t resist any longer.

To make this bench affordable, I used wood that I had left over from other projects; so my only real expense was the legs.

I decided how big I wanted the bench to be and cut the wood to size.

Since I was using 2 pieces of wood, I needed a good way to hold the pieces together; so I used a smaller piece and placed it perpendicular to my 2 pieces. This is the legs were attached (thanks hubs for helping).

When the bench was together, my husband got out the torch and went to town burning it!

The final step was to seal with Zinsser Bulls Eye Clear Shellac, this not only helps protect it from wear and tear but also gives it just a little bit of a warm glow.

I absolutely love the way it turned out, I can’t wait to make another one for my front porch entry.

This may be one of my favorite DIY furniture projects yet.

    where did you order the legs? Beautiful DIY. Is it for outside????

    • Thank you!. I’ll have to check where I ordered them, I think it was something like hairpinlegs.com…but there are several sites that sell them. I made this bench for outside, but I want one for my front porch and possibly my entryway too.

  2. Looks like it is from West Elm!!!! I love it.
