DIY Hairpin Leg Coffee Table with Remote Storage

by - 11:10:00

As you may know from previous blog posts, my family and I are currently living in a flip project. It's a cozy mid-century bungalow with tons of charm but not a lot of space. We couldn't use our square coffee table we had in our old house because it literally took up the whole living room. So I decided I would build a simple DIY hairpin leg coffee table to fit this space. I also included a small hidden shelf for our TV remote because that sucker always goes missing. As part of the modern handmade home series four other Canadian bloggers and myself partnered with Kreg Tool Company to build this project using their K4 pocket hole jig. To see the full plans for this DIY hairpin leg coffee table be sure to visit BuildSomething, Kreg's DIY project plan site, and get inspired by his project or the many other FREE DIY plans available there.





Honestly I had never used a pocket hole jig before but the instructions were clear and it was easy learn. I love how it gave my piece a professional look.


If you're not sure where to get hairpin legs I've provided some links below. From size to colour, there is a wide assortment out there. I used two pin legs for this project in 16" height. Here are some other great options:





Holiday Shopping Tip!
