HOW TO ADD LEGS to nightstands

I have not found one great place to purchase new furniture legs from. I have
seen them listed in Etsy shops, and ppl have told me they are also on Ebay. I
see them second hand in all sorts of thrift stores. They are on warn out couches
and chairs, mdf tables and broken stools, I have purchased furniture legs at 
many yard sales, wood table legs at the Restore, and cast iron ones at an 
antique store. The metal stove legs are a bit trickier to install with bolts and 
washers and such but it can be done. You can also cut legs from decorative 
posts. Once you start looking you might be surprised what you see out there, 
and it helps if you carry a saw with you everywhere you go. 

MDF coffee table legs are fairly easy to use for repurposing on night stands with the right tools.
A good example of an MDF coffee table can be seen in this article:
 You get 4 legs to use, they are made of solid wood, and it's only 1 or 2 bolts holding them in place. 
Coffee tables do come in different heights so keep this in mind when choosing.

#1 You will have to cut off the extra top part so they will sit flush under your night stand.


#2 Predrill and screw your legs into place on the front of your night stands.


#3 You need to cut back legs from some stock lumber to match the height of your front legs.


#4 Then glue and screw your back legs into place.

There you have it ...
