Above fridge cabinets used as low base cabinet?

Hi Guys,

So I have a very low window in my kitchen (28") off the floor and I want to continue cabinets and countertops along the whole wall but just have them duck under the window.

AKURUM Top cabinet to refrigerator - white, Härlig white, 30x15x24 " - IKEA

This cabinet is 30" wide, 24" deep like the other cabinets but only 24" high.

I'm asking here if it would be possible to mount this cabinet onto legs and add a countertop, in other words, just treat this like a lower?

Sure, people do this all the time. They're very popular for creating banquettes, too.
