How to Make Metal Legs for Coffee Table

Doing your own DIY project for a coffee table is an efficient way to spruce up your existing home decor and make it look more stylish and unique. Making metal legs for a coffee table yourself is not as difficult as it may seem.

Here is what you will need:

  • Plumber’s tape
  • Drill and drill bits
  • Leg mounting plates
  • Threaded metal rods in desired height
  • Impact driver or wrench
  • Metal legs


  1. Measure the height of your coffee table. It is important to measure your table to ensure that your metal legs are the correct height. Make sure to also measure where your legs will fit in relation to your coffee table’s surface.
  2. Install the leg mounting plates. Use the drill and drill bits to create holes in the top of your table to fit your leg mounting plates. Make sure that the mounting plates are secure, then tape them with the plumber’s tape.
  3. Attach the threaded metal rods. To attach the threaded metal rods to the leg mounting plates, use an impact driver or wrench. Be careful not to overtighten the rods. You want them to be secure, but not so much that they become too tight, as this can damage the mounting plates.
  4. Attach the metal legs. Once you have installed the threaded metal rods, you can now attach the metal legs. Most metal legs will come with pre-drilled holes in them. All you need to do is line up the holes in the legs with the threaded metal rods and use an impact driver or wrench to securely attach them.

That’s it! You now have a DIY metal leg coffee table that you can be proud of. With a little creativity and some simple tools, you can turn an everyday table into something unique and stylish.
