I recently purchase a wall cabinet for my bathroom to hang above the toilet. Since there are no wall studs in the wall directly behind the toilet, what can I use, if anything, to hang this cabinet? It is pretty heavy...
Please help!

Cool

What do you mean by "no wall studs"?
There should be studs on 16" centers in the wall.
What type of cabinet is it? (If it is a medicine cabinet, it should fit perfectly between studs.) How wide?
You should be able to locate the studs with a stud finder (magnet), drill pilot holes through the top and bottom frame of the cabinet (to match where the studs are located), and screw the cabinet to the wall.
Use a level to mark where the base of the cabinet will be located, so that it is hung level. You might even screw a temporary board on the wall at that level to sit the cabinet on while you screw it in place.
Good Luck!
