About This Project

Anything to make Laundry easier and looks good I will build.  This is a very simple project that is invaluable to anyone that does laundry.  We have it in our master bath to help with separating our laundry.

It is sturdy, functional and is a nice looking piece.  The only changes I made was to use 2x2's for the rails instead of the metal L-brackets. 

MDF, Plywood and Pine boards

What a fantastic job! I need one of these for my laundry. Do you forsee the baskets starting to sway or weaken on the ends? This is such a great idea and it looks really nice with the wicker next to it...

I would love to make this...is there any way you could post the dimension of it? I mean, I know the width depends on the baskets, but how tall did you make it to accomodate three of them? Thanks!

Hi, just made this for a friend using MDF for the sides and had some challenges. What part did you use MDF for?

I just loved this simple idea! I'm trying to organize a small sized laundry room and this would be perfect! Thanks so much :)

I did this, well my husband did! I love them!

If you get the wood from Home Depot and bring in the plans they will cut it for you!

MDF has its advantages - flat , smooth, somewhat strong. However prep the edges by applying vinyl spackling (let dry and sand) to help prevent moisture getting into the MDF and prime and sand really well. I have had issues with paint not adhering to the MDF if the surface was not prepared properly. Prime even if the paint says it contains primer.
