When it comes to furniture, we’re all about hacking the basics. Whether you polka dot your desk, paint the legs of your latest IKEA purchase, or reupholster a flea market find, it’s easy to make a few simple changes to a cheap piece of furniture to make it yours. Today, we turn our attention to legs. Change ’em, paint ’em, or buy ’em! And for good measure we’ve thrown in a few that you can buy or just use to spark an idea. Here are 20 picks to get you inspired.
2. Nogi Table ($707): Go bold with these neon legs at a severe angle.
4. Salvaged Coffee Table ($190): Bright blue metal legs + a reclaimed wood top = our favorite kind of decor.
6. Arden Chair ($709): Traditional chairs get an upgrade with just a little bit of paint. We know these are pricey, but the would be easy to DIY.
7. Washi Tape Sofa Legs: You knew we had to include some washi tape in this round up! Try a different striped pattern for each leg of your sofa. The best part? If you get tired of it, the tape will come off just as easy as it went on. (via Poppytalk)
8. Occasional Table ($750): Yet another take on the dip-dye, but what we really love about this piece is the proportions. Skinny legs on a boxy frame might sound unbalanced, but it works.
9. Pretty Pegs ($68+ for set of 4): Not down to invest in pricey furniture to get a great look? Then update your IKEA furniture with these peg legs in all kinds of colors and designs.
10. Hairpin Legs (price on request): Find your table top and then head to this Etsy shop to buy the perfect hairpin legs in any number or color you need.
13. Elko Coffee Table ($980): Coffee tables with brightly colored legs at a jaunty angle, must be a thing, huh? We’re digging these stems.
15. PBS Table (price on request): If you’re over the dip-dye trend, we’d suggest trying this color block leg. It turns the trend upside down, literally.
18. Painted Geometric Legs: We love these geometric painted wooden legs. They can help tie together a color theme in your living room, even if your couch is on the neutral side. (via Morning By Foley)
19. Jake Chair (price on request): Price upon request usually means expensive, but this could easily be replicated at home with any metal chair.
20. Metropolitan Ave. Coffee Table (price on request): This is a DIY project waiting to happen. Head to the architectural salvage store to find decorative legs to add to a wood table.
