Step 1

A few cosmetic touches disguise this utility table. Draw a shapely pattern on kraft paper, trace the shape onto medium-density fiberboard (MDF), and cut out eight leg pieces, 3/4 inch shorter than the metal table legs (this allows the MDF legs to float above the floor; the weight of the table remains on the metal legs). Miter at the corners.

Step 2

Secure pieces in pairs to create four table legs with wood screws. Make a 5-inch-deep MDF apron and secure underneath the tabletop. Prime and paint all pieces.
