Nice Legs: 20 Fun Furniture Legs to Buy or DIY
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.
