Updating Dresser with Sofa Legs

There is always dressers out there that need a little love.  I found this dresser at Habitat ReStore for $24. She had been sitting around for over a month and so I took it upon myself to make her beautiful again. She looked like she was born to have legs so I decided to give her legs!

Supplies needed:

  • Jigsaw
  • 2x6 and a 1x6 wood
  • Nail gun
  • Wood glue
  • Sofa plates
  • Sofa legs-the ones I bought were 4 inches in height and 4 inches in width.

Step 1.  For this dresser the originally height was 32 and I wanted the total height to be 34 with 4 inch legs.   The first thing you will need to do is to look at the base and assess if you need to cut down a skirt and add wood to create a stable base for the legs. For the dresser I needed to take off 2 inches off the skirt.

Step 2.  I took off the dresser trim-this was pretty easy because it popped off right after I took all the screws out from the base skirt.

Step 3.  To trim a portion of the skirt a jigsaw. In my case 2 inches

Step 4. I measured the amount of extra wood I would need to create a base for the legs.  I needed 2x6 and a 1x6. I cut them down to 17 inches (base depth). I attached the wood for the base with wood glue and nails-to make my life easier I used a nail gun (if you don't have one regular nails work)

Step 5.  I attached the sofa plates and legs and nailed the skirt trim back into place.

Waaaahlaaa! Now you have an updated dresser with beautiful legs.
