I loathe my laundry room:( It needs serious attention. I saw this DIY Washer/Dryer Pedestal on Ana’s site and thought that would give me the motivation to make-over my laundry room! I will share my sadly neglected laundry room pics with you in my reveal because today it’s all about the pedestal!
I didn’t make any modifications to the plans. I started by framing out two “floors”. I used wood screws and Gorilla Glue Wood Glue for all joining pieces. (Make sure to pre-drill!)
After building the floors, I attached 4×4 posts to each corner for the legs.
I did not use the optional metal brackets because I couldn’t find the right size. I did counter-sink the screws at an angle and I used a TON of Gorilla Glue Wood Glue!
This is an upside down view of the top of the pedestal.
I attached the “bottom” floor to the legs using the same steps as above. What you are seeing is two floors framed with 2×4′s and 3/4″ MDF for the actual “floor”.
Here it is flipped upright. Yes, it is HEAVY!!!!
I tried my hand at a little mitering…..
Let’s just say that I FINALLY figured it out after another trip to Home Depot for another 8′ piece of trim. Small price to pay for a greater knowledge of the miter saw….at least that’s what I am telling myself;)
Tada! Please excuse the garage. I’m a messy builder! My only thought after I constructed this sucker was ‘how the heck am I gonna get’er under the washer and dryer’…pretty sure that’s NOT gonna be without my hubby;)
I’ll be back later with my laundry room reveal pics but while you’re here check out Whitney’s laundry room. Super Cute! Also, it’s not to late to enter the Silhouette Giveaway. You can get all the details and enter HERE!
