Don't let this DIY Hairpin Coffee Table fool ya, that's a stencil design!
I have seen DIY hairpin legs start to make themselves known and I thought this project would be a great way to dive into a new trend. So I made this DIY hairpin coffee table featuring a tile stencil on top!
Luckily for you guys, I videoed the process! Check it out and be sure to read up on all the details I missed in the video below.

I am a huge fan of chalk paint and normally I use Annie Sloan but ever since I used Rustoleum chalk paint on my fireplace, I wanted to try it out on this build and I love it! Even better it's the third of the price of Annie Sloan! Sorry Annie! But Rustoleum is taking the win on this one! I'm excited to see how it holds up! I used the Rust-Oleum Charcoal for the under bottom and the Rust-Oleum Linen White for the top. This was the perfect paint for a stencil because it dries so quickly. Idk if I would have enjoyed this project as much if I used regular paint.
I have been seeing these Santa Ana Tile Stencil everywhere and since I couldn't use them for my floors, I thought what better to use them on then a piece of furniture! The best part was it was only $9.99! Nothing like a cheap stencil to make my day! I cut the wooden piece down so that I could fit the stencil on there 4 times. The stencil comes in two sizes so depending on the size you can decide the length you want. Mine was 24x36.
This was my first time using a stencil so I definitely learned some good tips for getting a clean finish. Rule # 1 don't put a blob of paint on the brush and expect to get clean lines. IT AINT GONE HAPPEN'.... I would suggest practicing on a scrap piece of wood first to get the hang of it, unless you want to be a brave soul like me and just thug it out. Either way, it wasn't that hard to do. I think a good brush is key, I picked mine up from my local Home Depot. Once I finished stenciling the table top I coated it with Rust-Oleum Clear.
This was my first experience with hairpin legs, as well and I loved using them. They were super easy to incorporate into my DIY hairpin coffee table . Huge shoutout to DIY Hairpin Legs for sending these babies over! I loved that the legs came equipped with screws, I wasn't expecting that at all. It also came with full instructions on how to use them, even though its pretty straight forward. I used Rust-Oleum Flat Black and Rust-Oleum Matte Clear on the hairpin legs and it really made them come to life.
I am so happy with how this build came out. It was my first industrial type build and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I think we need one last look!
I love that this DIY hairpin coffee table has such a modern feel to it and it only took one afternoon to get it finished! I would love to see your go at this modern hairpin coffee table.

Who doesn't love a farmhouse coffee table with a nice set of turned legs?
These legs are super popular in the woodworking community and I couldn't wait to get my hands on them. Thankfully, my friends over at Build Something are partnering with me to present the plans so you can create your own!

and that about wraps it up!

This was a totally unexpected build, but I just love how it turned out! I had some left over boards from a project and saw a similar console on Pinterest and just had to re-enact it. Luckily it only took me about 30 min. to build. Doesn't get any better than that! Perfect for the beginner DIYer.

1 - 2x10 @ 8ft
1- 2x6 @ 8ft
1- 2x12 @ 10ft
2 - 2x10 @ 29 1/4" (10" angle on both sides) cut like a rhombus
1 - 2x6 @ 32 1/2" (10" angle on both sides) cut like a trapezoid
1 - 2x12 @ 46" (10" angle on both sides) cut like a trapezoid
Step 1: Attach the middle 2x6 brace (32 1/2") to the side 2x10 (29 1/4") leg using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 1 1/2" setting, with 2 1/2" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. The 2x6 should be flush with the top of the side leg and inset 3 3/4" from the front.
I used my Ryobi 15 Amp 12 in. Sliding Miter Saw with Laser to cut the middle 2x6 brace which will be cut at an angle of 10 degrees using the bottom miter scale. The side 2x10 leg will be cut at an angle of 10 degrees by tilting the blade to the desired angle.
After cutting the wood I used my Kreg 3/4 HP Electric Foreman Pocket Hole Machine to make Kreg Holes in my 2x6 and 2x10 board. I put the fence setting in between 3/4" and 1 1/2". I'm not sure how that translates using a regular K4 machine, but I would think that using a 1 1/2" setting would be fine, but again I'm not sure.
I screwed 4 holes on the sides and 8 on the top for attaching the top later. I also put one pocket hole on the two side legs in the back for securing the top. (Picture Below)
Step 2: Attach the other side 2x10 (29 1/4") leg using a Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System on a 1 1/2" setting, with 2 1/2" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. The 2x6 should be flush with the top of the side leg and inset 3 3/4" from the front.
Step 3: Attach the console table top 2x12 (46") using the pre-drilled pocket holes and 2 1/2" pocket hole screws to attach along with wood glue. I placed my top so that it hangs 1 1/2" from the base. Table top angles will be cut by the tilting the blade.
and ladies and gentlemen! Your done! Time for a finish and some hardware.
I have been seeing a couple people use Rust-Oleum's Varathane 1 qt. 3X Briarsmoke Premium Wood Stain and I have been dying to get my hands on it! I really love this color.
Once I finished staining the console I added these industrial pieces I had laying around, I believe I got them from Lowes. Be creative!
