Ikea Lagkapten Table Top Angled Tube Leg (or chose your favorite style)

Screws - We used #12 screws


Materials needed: drill, screws, top and angled tube legs


Step One

There's really just one step to creating your DIY desk and that is attaching the legs to your top.

For this project, we chose our white powder coated Angled Tube Leg. This table leg is minimalistic in design, but big on style. They have adjustable levelers which are perfect for uneven floors.

The predrilled 1/4" holes allow for easy mounting. For this project we used #12 screws.

Position the legs on each corner, about 3/4" from the edge and secure with your drill. You can mount the legs at an angle like shown below or at 90 degrees.
