Personally I love the industrial look, rustic wood against gun metals with a masculine edge, what’s not to love?
You can either incorporate some industrial touches in to your decor like I do or go to town and fully embrace the trend.
There are two main ingredients required to be able to pull off industrial style and that is reclaimed wood and aged metal. You can have fun upcycling too if you are feeling creative.
If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen my dining room. I can’t put my finger on what style it is and that’s probably because it’s a mixture of many and that is how I managed to create a space that is unique to me, however there are definitely some industrial vibes going on.
Recently a company called ‘The Hairpin Leg Company‘ got in contact and asked if I would like to do a simple DIY using their industrial style hairpin legs to transform a piece of furniture in my home. Immediately I thought of my dining table, I love the top of it but the legs are a bit chunky for my liking.
Here is my dining table before…
I have to admit my dad helped did the handy work because the existing legs were difficult to remove but if they hadn’t been it would have been a quick and easy job for me to do myself.
The Hairpin Leg Company started out as a small family venture and thanks to the rise in popularity of Industrial decor, they have blossomed in to a successful business, supplying hair pin legs to customers all over the world.
I chose the heavy duty 3 pin legs, because my table top is really solid, but there are loads of different sizes, colours and finishes available to suit any needs. Click here to view the collection.
Here is my dining table now…
I love the way it has transformed the table and with very little effort. I’m currently looking around my house to see what else I can use them on.
You can add hair pin legs to a number of things to transform them in to a functional piece of furniture, here are some ideas…
- Add hairpin legs to a long piece of wood like a scaffold board to make a bench for your hallway
- Add small hairpin legs to a crate for a ready made bedside table
- Transform a plain Ikea desk top by adding hair pin legs in a different colour
- Attach them to a shelving or TV unit, they will add height too.
I hope I have inspired you to try something new.
Until next time,
