How to do about this vanity that won’t sit tight to the wall due to trim molding?


Slight goof during a bathroom remodel – the vanity we got won't sit tight to the wall due to the trim molding.

Obviously one option is to return the vanity and get a new one (ugh!)

Or I could let it be as-is, and live with the small gap between counter and wall.

Or I could cut into the trim to seat the legs further back, and hope that the eye isn't drawn down there much (it's not in a major sightline for the bathroom).

I am favoring the latter, I think. What do you think?

If that leg can be unscrewed and moved over 1/2 inch, that would be my first choice. If not, then I'd get a coping saw and cut the leg to fit the trim.
