Any time I can improve my 'doing laundry' experience - I will. Let me show you my latest projects for storage and folding laundry by using an old wooden fence.
I recently stacked my washer and dryer, which gave more room for a table. You can see that post HERE to see the difference. I fold lots of laundry for my family and I wanted a large space to spread it all out.
So I topped (4) 4x4's with a section of old fencing that I had used in Luke's Room and to Frame in My Fridge. I used a 1x2 on the front to make it look more finished and cross beams on two ends to make the legs more sturdy. The little iron bracket you can see in the photo below is more for decoration.
Underneath fits the garbage and an end table to store bleach, softeners and dryer sheets.
Above the table hangs the piece of the fence that I cut down to fit it into this space. I used an iron nail button to secure a little wire basket to the center of it.
I got hooked on these Tide laundry soap pods while staying with my mom this past summer. So I can store them here for easy reach.
Or use the basket for fresh flowers.
That 'sock' bucket (aka sock hell) works great for odd socks waiting for their mate to make it through a batch of laundry. I didn't want to take up my valuable folding space so I used 's' hooks and a chain to raise the bucket up and over the shelf bar above.
The wooden drying rack fit right under the window. I love having a window in the laundry room.
The laundry room feels open, easy to work in and bright with a rustic edge of style.
Maybe that will help me want to do more laundry...
