cabinet falling off the wall

My cabinet is falling off the wall and worse the front box is disconnecting from the back. I can reanchor in the wall, but how do I get the box to stay attached to the back without something showing. An L bracket would work but screws will show:confused:

Sounds like the cabinet is falling apart.

You will have to rebuild it, and the best way to do that is when the cabinet is off the wall.

If the wood is deteriorated to the point of no repair, then there is very little you can do to fix it.

What DJ said.

If the cabinet is falling apart, you need to put it back together, the best way to do that is to take it off the wall and do the repairs on the bench. If the cabinet is too far gone, or this is beyond your means, then you will need to hire someone to do this for you. In lieu of repairing the cabinet, you'll need to replace it.

The cabinet may not have ever been up to speed as far as being able to carry the expected weight. When repairing the cabinet, you might need to beef it up a bit more than the manufacturer designed.
