PART II A LEG UP - adding legs to furniture

I've given you some tips to adding legs to your furniture projects,
now I want to share different styles and types with you.

The 3 legs used on this corner unit
were salvaged from a little queen anne side table.

NEW Lee Valley cast iron lions feet were added to this little shelf.

Next an example of cast iron stove legs.

The legs on this media console are sections cut from uprights
an octagon 70's side table.
Most of you know the ones, next time  you see one
stop and grab it.

Even a bed frame can have bun feet added to lift it up.
These bun feet if I recall correctly were found on a curb side love seat.
Just stop the car, jump out, unscrew each leg, and your on your way.
I don't have one great source for legs, I simply watch for them every where I go.
An important thing to keep in mind when thinking about installing legs
is the weight of the furniture and the strength of your legs and install.

And of course if your furniture is better suited for casters
don't stop until you find a great industrial set.
Who doesn't like furniture that moves easily?
