  • Cut a hole in the wall spanning from stud to stud, and then cut a piece of 2×8 to fit snugly between the studs.
  • (Optional) Move the stop valves closer to the trap, in order to hide them behind the pedestal.
  • Attach the brace with angle-driven screws.
  • Patch the hole, sand smooth, and paint.
