For this project, I chose Spoonflower's Dark Gray & Cream Geo Tribal Fabric designed by Bohemian Gypsy Jane in Faux Suede.


How To Create A Modern DIY Hairpin Leg Bench:





1. (Optional) If you want to give your hair pins legs a different finish, spray paint your legs. While the paint is drying, determine the length and width for your bench. Mark your board accordingly and use a long level or a straight edge to mark your lines.

2. Use your pencil marks as your guide and make your cuts.

3. Determine where you want your hairpin legs to sit in relationship to the entire bench. 
Measure and mark them. Then, pre-drill your holes and screw them in place.

4. Measure and cut your cushion foam. You want your foam to be about 1/8 " over the wood.
Spray adhesive onto the board and lay the foam on top. Wrap the cushion wrap around the foam and staple to the underside of the wood.





5. Measure and cut your Spoonflower fabric so that you have 3-4" of overhang on each side. You can always trim the excess later! Wrap the fabric around the cushion wrap and secure with staples.
It's that easy!....

  4. Cute bench. We had a MCM nightstand box with no legs, so I ordered hairpins.That little nightstand sold so quickly that I didn't even get a photo. Your bench is much cuter. I saw your link at the Creative Circle party. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey www.irisabbey.com

What a great way to make your own new bench that has an old charm! The mix of fabric patterns between the bench and pillow is really cool! As always I am so inspired by your style and projects!!!
