Weird, Wonderful Mannequin Leg Side Table

Get inspired by unique upcycled ideas like this weird, wacky and wonderful Mannequin Leg Side Table. I've always been a fan of weird and wonderful furniture that tells a story.

This unusual Mannequin Leg Side Table is a "think outside of the box" idea!

Love it or hate it, you have to admit that this project makes you see everyday objects differently. When I found two pairs of mannequin legs during my regular trash picking sessions I knew I had to make a table. I  found a pair of bedside tables that would work perfectly in this project.

First, I removed the existing table fixed them together to make one unit. Next, I attached the mannequin legs. This was a tricky process to get the table level, but I got there in the end!

Once I had secured the legs in the right place, I wanted to make the whole piece flow as one organic form. I used an assortment of contrasting fabrics, and applied them with PVA glue all over the piece, using the same method as you would with papier mache. Finally, I upholstered the top with denim pieces to finish off.

Decoupage is a great way to involve the kids in a project. Just be careful when using PVA glue with little ones.

These mannequin legs were the inspiration for my project. Don't be afraid to use an object in a different way than the original purpose.
