How to DIY a hairpin console table using IKEA’S BERGSHULT shelf


Since making myself a nifty little console table for my hallway in 2018, I’ve seen console tables like this one sell online, pre-made for £80-100. Mine cost me half that and took just 10 minutes to build!

There are three ways you can DIY a really nice console table yourself – using a shelf such as the BERGSHULT shelf from IKEA which is just £9, cutting a piece of 18mm plywood or mdf and painting it, or, using a scaffold board or piece of timber and staining it. All are really simple to do, and require little-to-no DIY ability.

You can get hold of hairpin legs from several retailers online including Amazon and eBay, and come in a number of different colours, finishes and heights, as well as 2 pin and 3 pin styles. All usually come with a rubber foot floor protector and screws to attach it with.
