As the sun makes a welcome return, we can’t wait to start enjoying time outdoors again.
To celebrate, we thought we’d combine two of our favourite things about summer – garden DIY, and lounging outside with a cold G&T. These garden tables with hairpin legs are stylish, functional, and full of character. Let the summer projects begin!
Using smooth scaffolding planks, Child of Sparrow have created this neat 6-person garden dining table. Surrounded by thriving ivy, its matching white seats and hairpin legs give it a clean and simple aesthetic.
Nothing compares to the glow of copper, beaming away in the sunshine. This table and bench combo looks picture perfect in Alice’s beautiful Cornish garden. Hard-wearing and easily available, scaffolding planks are perfect for garden tables and benches. And over time outdoors, copper legs will develop a beautiful patina.

Hats off to Gary Copland Powell for creating this herringbone garden table – probably the best use of birch ply offcuts we’ve ever seen. Made with clear-coat steel hairpins, to protect the metal from the elements. Tagged on Instagram with: #onestepawayfromahipster
Just steer clear of snapping filtered polaroids of it, Gary, and you’ll be fine. ;-)
Whether you’re having a few quiet drinks, or a big family BBQ, a drop-leaf table like this one can quickly be adjusted to accommodate the headcount. With stained softwood and steel hairpins, this industrial-style dining set is both stylish and practical.
Sturdy 3-rod zinc hairpins look great with a chunky wood top. Zinc legs are highly-durable and rust-resistant, making them perfect for outdoor furniture. Complete with designer Eames chairs, this space has summer BBQs written all over it.
