I wanted to dress the cabinets up further by adding feet. While poking around the architectural salvage yard one day, I came across these nine balusters. I saw the nice carved shape and thought, "I can make feet from these!"
|Very dirty balusters from an outdoor staircase. Gonna need the Krud Kutter cleaner!|
Sure enough, by cutting them into five pieces...
|I chopity chop chopped on the chop saw.|
I created feet! One section (number 4 above) gave me nine feet for the cabinets. I also got four feet for another project from section 2.
|Lots of feet! The nine on the right are for the cabinets.|
After thoroughly cleaning the feet, I painted them black. Then I attached them to the cabinets with a drop of construction adhesive.
Total cost of this project was $4.50. I paid 50 cents each for the balusters. The MDF, wallpaper and paint were all leftovers from previous projects.
