DIY: Hairpin Leg Bench
Angela Ferdig of Kriselkeeper created a beautiful bench inspired by the Nakashima table in Steal This Look: Julianne Moore’s West Village Living Room on Remodelista. Her version was much more affordable than the original: “My much less pricey DIY bench, which consists of a piece of reclaimed wood and four hairpin legs, cost a total of $109.” Read more about her project on The Stir at Cafe Mom; recreate the look with the following elements.
Above: Angela used four custom-fabricated brushed-stainless 12-Inch Hairpin Legs ($16 per leg) from Ian Maclean, an Ohio-based metal worker, for her bench.
Above: For the top, Angela sourced a plank of reclaimed wood from Reclaimed Wood Products in Los Angeles. According to the company: “Billions of board feet of wood goes into our land fills every year…not only is this a tragic waste of resources, but a lot of this wood is rare, old growth material (often hundreds of years old) with a character that cannot be matched by newer material.”
