Ekby Valter brackets as legs for a chest

I am so pleased with this hack! I was looking for legs for this G-Plan style chest of drawers which had been part of a Ladderax-type system.

I decided to use some Ekby Valter shelf brackets that I had spare.

Simply fill the screw holes on the down post that you would use to attach the bracket to the wall. Sand and paint however you like.

Attach to chest

Attach the legs using the screw holes that would usually hold the shelf in place. Place them so that the unit will balance.


They also look cool from the side.


Et voilà!
