ZZ high kept walking by way of my head with this challenge. “She’s bought legs…” Any eighty’s peeps out there? I’m soooo excited with how this easy undertaking grew to become out. Two years in the past I bought a butcher block top from Lumber Liquidators to put on top of an current table base that I had. I had main issue getting rid of the desk prime from the base so I used some IKEA shelves at as a desk base. It wasn’t perfect. Then I acquired some hairpin legs from
Amazon and i couldn’t be happier with the top product. I normally say, “this is my favorite undertaking.” and once again, i have a new favorite undertaking.
So, first I bought a butcher block top from lumber liquidators.
the primary time that I oiled the butcher block, I used tung oil. I didn’t think that it held up very well however might be it was laziness on my phase. I watch a meals blogger on Instagram (Flavcity) and he confirmed how he makes use of mineral oil on his chopping boards to situation them. So, I purchased this mineral oil off of Amazon.
I poured it on generously and rubbed it in.
After you rub it in every single place your desk prime, you look forward to it to soak up as a lot as possible and then rub a fabric throughout the highest to get rid of any extra. I let mine soak in all night lengthy due to the fact that it gave the impression so dry.
Wow, what a change the oiling it makes! Right here it’s half performed.
What could occur it you don’t oil it adequate? It would crack. I think this occurred considering I didn’t oil it as mainly as I will have to have. It is deep however doesn’t go all of the manner via so that is now the bottom of my desk.
So probably the most problems with the IKEA shelves as a base is that it interfered with chairs and leg room. So I set a chair on high with a leg to ensure that i might be glad with the position.
The directions say to situation them in 2 inches from the edges for a dining room table however I instead preferred the look of four inches in from each side.
I made a template so that each and every corner the legs would be in the same position. You might simply measure but i love to use templates. I punched holes after which used a black marker by means of the holes to mark the desk at each corner.
The situation that I ordered the hairpin legs from on Amazon stated should you incorporated the thickness of your tabletop, then they might ship the correct measurement screws. These are best. I hate having to go purchase hardware for a task.
0 The instructions didn’t say to predrill the holes and that i couldn’t find my drill bits so “coronary heart in hand”, I drilled the screws into the table legs.
1 a number of quick minutes later… So easy!
2 These legs are attractive!
3 simply in time for the holidays!
4 You wouldn’t feel how this desk went from humdrum to exquisite simply by means of including a pair of $50 hairpin legs.
