Step 1First, I painted the toe kick black to give the illusion of a shadow under a leggy furniture piece.
Step 2My 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.
