To say I'm addicted to plants may be the understatement of the year. I'm full on #crazyplantlady and proud of it. I mean, how can you resist them, especially those super cute mini succulents. Heart eyes for days.
Another addiction of mine? Hairpin legs on furniture. I mean, come on. So when I was Home Depot with my hubs the other day I was fascinated when I found mini copper hairpin legs - what! Turns out in reality they are actually pipe hangers, which is a lot less exciting, but in my mind they were hairpin legs all the way and I needed to have them. Should I also mention they were 70 cents? yeah.
What you'll need:
- 4 Copper Pipe Hangers (found in the plumping supply section of your hardware store)
- 12x5" Board, 3/4" or thicker (I used some reclaimed wood for a more rustic look, but you can also buy new!)
Carefully hammer in your "legs" (the pipe hangers) one inch from either end on the long sides of your of your board, and there ya go! I was actually surprised at how much weight mine could take, however I would definitely be careful and stick to the nice lightweight mini plants and avoid putting too much weight on it.
Seriously so easy.
