    Hi and thank you for any help. I need to put a breakfast bar in my kitchen but the only wall available to attach it to is a stud wall. I realise it will never be as sturdy as attaching to a solid wall but unfortunately do not have that option. What in that case would be the best/stupidest way of attaching one end to the wall. I have a good leg for the free end that will stick out but am a little out of my comfort zone when it comes to the wall end. Thank you for any help. Rob

    Can you locate a stud or 2 and attach a horizontal piece across them, then rest the bar on that?

    The stud wall is the metal type and not wood unfortunately.

    Fix a pine bearer to the wall, using hollow wall anchors (eg Screwfix 18266). The bearer size could be around 25 x 50mm.

    Just checked out screwfix site and that 18266 part looks just the job. Thank you for your advice. Cheers

    You could always a leg at both ends, must stronger than just wall mounting.
