If you’re comfortable working with timber, you can save yourself some money by making your own laundry pedestal, all for around $60 worth of timber, plywood, paint and two sets of drawer slides.
Home remodelling weblog Just a Girl shared the pedestal project her family recently undertook. They chose short pieces of timber to keep the project affordable and added braces every 15cm or so for added durability. After the basic box for the pedestal was assembled, the drawers were constructed from 1cm plywood and attached to the pedestal with the drawer slides. Then the top of the pedestal was constructed, again with 1cm plywood, before the drawer fronts were made with scrap MDF. Decorative trim was added to the drawer fronts and everything was painted white to match the appliances.
No plans or exact dimensions were given, but it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out the dimensions you need for your own space.
