How to Add Feet to a Dresser - Before and After
This dresser got a fresh new look with paint, hardware, and the addition of new "feet" and trim.
I see honey colored maple dressers just like this one all of the time in thrift shops. You probably do, too. You might even have one in your home. I decided give this one a major update.
I started by removing the skirt along the bottom. I was able to simply unscrew the skirt and pry off a few nails and the entire bottom came off. I then attached 1 x 4 and 1 x 3 pieces of wood along the bottom edges to create a surface for attaching the brackets.
I then attached brackets to the four corners and screwed in the new feet.
I mitered, glued, and nailed a new piece of trim along the bottom to ease the transition between the dresser and the new feet. Finally, a few coats of a soft white paint and new hardware and the updated look was complete.
