In response to Re: attaching pedestal sink to wall
: The soon to be half bath is 32" wide and thus there is only one stud right in the center of the wall. So, I am assuming I would add one 2x6 brace on each side of that center stud and connect the other ends with the studs that make up the corners of the wall. Correct?

Yup, this is the way to go. If the walls are open, this is really a no-brainer. I mean, what does it take in time and money to put in a couple of pieces of 2x6?

If you've got to rip out and patch drywall, it's kind of a pain in the neck, but I'd still do it this way. You say that the wall is only 32" wide, so you're only talking about part of one sheet. You don't have any seems to tape, other than the corners, so it shouldn't be too bad.

I don't trust toggles or molly bolts for anything that weighs more than a few pounds. Drywall anchors, IMO, are basically useless for anything other than toilet paper dispensers.
