How to add legs to a kitchen island


When we were in the process of our kitchen renovation I always knew I wanted the island to have legs, so the hubs made it happen! (he is the best) Here is a step by step tutorial.
When we took the bookshelves out we needed to support the counter top so we placed a piece of wood underneath throughout the whole process.
First things first, measure and measure again, then go back and measure again, serious!
Based on your measurements, make a frame with your outside corners secured with corner brackets. Attach the frame securely to your island using screws.
You will most likely need to cut the legs to the appropriate height. Add the legs by securing your corner brackets with the center screw into the leg.
