Just another way to use a washboard.

I needed more storage in my laundry room, so built some truly "rustic" corner cabinets. After extensive searching, I was able to locate 2 new washboards to use as the doors on the corner cabinets.

Got a question about this project?

    Thanks Sharron. Hey, I was having fun. First, I was just going to make open corner shelves; then, I decided they should be made into cabinets...........like I'm a cabinet maker..........NOT! Once considering making cabinets, the question was, how would I make the doors? Wash boards just sounded like fun, appropriate and easy.

    How clever! I love washboards but have never thought to do this. Great paint job on the plaid. That takes some talent!

    Donna, I appreciate your kind words. I just couldn't think of anything more appropriate as doors than old washboards in the laundry room. It made me laugh.

    ....and thank God, we don't need to do the wash with those old washboards anymore!!

    Yes Frankie I agree with you but for us older generation it gives you memories when maybe your mom used one. I know we had one but do not remember her using it but I do remember our wringer washer and that was work too. It makes you appreciate your mother. P.S. You have a very cute dog.
