home: made [ furniture legs ]
It’s the simplest idea but incredibly effective. Adding new legs to a piece of new (or old) furniture can alter the whole design, era, feel of the piece. It’s a great way to update a set of drawers, chair, unit or shelving but also to make it suit the style or look of a room. Legs can reinvent a unit.
Find simple floor based IKEA units or old legless vintage sideboards or chests of drawers and give them a better design with the right set of legs, whether they are short and stubby, tapered, midcentury, industrial or traditional mounded wood – for not much money you may just transform a piece of furniture you thought wasn’t suitable.
Of course additionally you can spray, paint, strip or cover a piece too but it’s the initial legs addition that makes a huge impact.
