After oh...6 months of ebay searches and outbids I finally got my hairpin legs for my coffee table, they arrived yesterday! It took me a long time to find a fair priced set at coffee table height, convincing me that they are becoming a hot item - I'll definitely be keeping my eyes peeled for sets at flea markets this summer.
I'm going to spray paint them white and mount them on our white VIKA MANNE table top from ikea, replacing the too short stainless steel legs I've got on there now.
It's not my dream coffee table, but it's white, and stain & abuse proof. I'll update with pics when I'm done.
