The Strange Case of the Floating Cabinet

 I have this fabulous Coats spool cabinet, and I was not using it. So I decided to move it into my craft room, but it was kinda big sitting on top of these file drawers.  To me it looked like it was floating on top, precariously at that.
 My solution was to cut some table legs to length and then just wedge them underneath. They are not even attached. Just held by friction between the cabinet and the floor. I think it solves the problem nicely, and makes the cabinet look like a piece of furniture.
 And below is the whole messy creative space. Creativity is messy.

The metal cabinets below are actually holding the coats cabinet up. The legs are just ornamental.

I love the cabinet! I saw a huge one at an auction once (still filled with 80 year old threads!) and regret not bidding on it.

Good idea with the legs.
