DIY Furniture Style Cabinet

Whew, I have another project crossed off the list in our master bath remodel. Creating a diy furniture style cabinet using the existing builder grade vanity is a great (cheap) alternative to replacing it.
 DIY Furniture Style Cabinet with Feet and Decorative Trim- 
We have the typical boring cabinets throughout our home- basic, no frills, and probably not much real wood either.

Step 1

First, I painted the toe kick black to give the illusion of a shadow under a leggy furniture piece.

Step 2

My next step to aid in the furniture illusion was to add legs to the cabinet. Because you hafta’ have legs on a leggy furniture-look vanity, right? Van Dyke’s has an awesome selection and I was able to find just the right style and size.

I measured the height of the toe kick on our cabinet in each spot where I wanted a leg, then looked for legs that would be a little taller than the largest measurement. (I wanted to have extra height to easily trim as needed to allow for uneven floors.)

I also knew I wanted the top section of the legs to be square so that it would transition smoothly to the future vanity skirts. Here is a closeup after priming, painting, and attaching to the vanity.
