This is my version of the washer/ dryer pedestal. I changed a couple of things and made it smaller to fit in my closet but I am very pleased with the outcome. This is my very FIRST project to do in my home and although it brought tears a couple of times, it is very sturdy and extremely useful. It definitely makes a difference and my husband hasn't stopped doing laundry since we put it in so I am SUPER happy!
A few things about the project, it took me much longer because I am a beginner but it was definitely worth taking my time. It is not completely perfect but it goes in a closet and it for laundry so the main thing was sturdiness for me. I spent quite a bit of time painting it and researching and trying different techniques. I believe she used MDF cover for the final touch so hers looks more flawless. I need to go back and fill in a couple of scratches from where we knicked it with the dryer but it serves the purpose.
I too started my first project and hand many moments of sweat, tears, and soreness( mostly the day after) but we finished it an although its not perfect it slowly started to look better...lol I just had to give you some kudos because I think it looks great and its even better because you made it. Hope to see more!
Thank you so much for your encouraging words! I used quite a bit of wood filler and caulk on this project. It is still holding up so far, so I am very happy with it. The most time consuming is definitely painting.
