Mid-century IKEA BESTA with hairpin legs

Materials: BESTA Shelf unit/height extension unit, BESTA HOLMBO Door

Description: I wanted a media unit for under my TV, since the rest of my living room has a mid-century feel, I decided that I wanted to attempt my first Ikea hack with some hairpin legs I’d ordered from Hairpin Legs. We used 1″ wood screws with attaching the legs. Pretty simple hack, but it looks awesome.

    you realize hairpins are supposed to be mounted at 45 degrees, sloping toward each corner, right? it appears you’ve mounted them at 90 degrees, pointing forward and backward…
