Laundry Room Pedestals

New home 05.09.16
We saved over $400 by building our own pedestals for our washer and dryer. We spent a little more money in order to include the drawers/storage space. Love 'em!

    If drawers seem daunting, you can make the pedestal with open cubbies and add baskets for extra laundry supplies, etc. You could also keep a small step stool in there. ;)

    Love this idea, I think I would like to build it only use laundry baskets in place of drawers, because my laundry area is so small already.

    I didn't want space under the w/d ....just wanted to get them up so I wouldn't have to bend so low.....just built a box and sat them on...perfect!

    How did you know that plywood would support such a heavy appliance?How thick is the plywood? I saw the commercially- made pedastals in Lowe's when we bought our machines, and assumed there mustmetal supporting them.
