Laundry dresser using 1x4 boards

Submitted by Drspear98 on Fri, 08/10/2018 - 10:11

i made a laundry dresser about three years ago, but we had a water filtration sytem installed in our laundry room and I had to build another one to fit the new dimensions. I loved this idea because it’s simple, and more open. I wanted to choose some larger, sturdier baskets, so I chose the Sterilite 2-bushel baskets. I bought them at Walmart. I am not an expert in woodworking, but I am very happy with the results. I accidentally made it a little too wide, but I added another 1x2 to the rack where the baskets hang, and now the baskets fit perfectly. I chose pre-primed pine boards because I hate sanding and I hate painting. The top are just normal 1x4 pines that I glued together and fastened from underneath. I did have to sand those. I also did add a coat of paint that matches my baseboards. All in all, I am pleastly surprised that it turned out.
