        Need suggestions for vanity fix Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Our son in law remodeled our bathroom and one leg is higher than the rest. We put a piece of felt under it and it just doesn't look right. Well as I was reading the paper work that came with the vanity I realized he didn't take the shipping feet off. It's too late to do that now so is there anything we can do to make it look better? Any suggestions please. This is so frustrating!

        Can you put a little shim underneath the leg?

        The problem is the shipping foot is in the middle of the vanity leg,which is much fatter,so there's the vanity leg then the smaller,more narrow shipping foot raising it higher.If we shim it we'd have a shim raising the shipping foot even higher. I hope I'm explaining it well enough to get the picture. I just don't know how to make this shipping foot less noticeable. Also I don't think we can raise it since the sink is already in and the vanity is attached to the wall.

        Now is a good time to teach your son in law the importance of paying attention, and doing it right the first time. Have him come back and remove it all. If it's a standard straight countertop and free standing vanity (other than being attached to the wall) that whole assembly comes off and apart very easily and quickly. He could have it done by the time you cook a pot roast dinner, then you all could eat good and laugh about it.

        But if there is any 90 degree cabinets and countertops, then that will be more difficult and not recommended for a rookie.

        If the photo is not getting attached here, you can mail us the picture, only then we'll be able to offer an appropriate suggestion.
