Adding Furniture Legs To Bathroom Vanity

I wanted to find a way to make our builder grade cabinets a little fancier. I've seen people add furniture legs under their vanities to beef them up a bit, and thought I'd give it a try. Well, I thought I'd let my hubby give it a try since I don't use tools very well. :) If you want to see the full tour of our bathrooms, click HERE

Here's a "before" pic. Plain ol' feet-less cabinets. :)


Here's what we purchased. They were unfinished when we bought them and I primed them and put a couple of coats of Heirloom White spray paint on them. We got them at Lowes for about $5.99 each. 

They were a tad short for out cabinets, so my hubby added these little spacers to the tops.

Next, we just fit them under the cabinet. The spacers are completely hidden, so I didn't have to paint them.

These are the nails he used to secure them to the cabinets.

Here's the worker man himself nailing them to the cabinets. 

Here's the nailer he used. This was a black Friday purchase a few years ago. :)

And here's the finished product! It really didn't take any time at all and I think it makes a big difference in how they look. 

Here's another "before" shot...


And an "after." So simple and inexpensive. I love those kinds of projects!

Hope y'all have a great day!

  13. Thanks for the nail-from-inside tip. I would have been trying to get a hammer in between the floor and the bottom of the cabinet. Jo @ Let's Face the Music
