Industrial Appliance Cart

02.22.15
I was searching for something to provide attractive, easy storage for all my small kitchen appliances without cluttering up the countertops. After seeing something similar online, I was inspired to build a simple storage rack out of 2x12's and galvanized pipe and flanges. It was exactly what I needed! Now all my doodads are hidden away in my adjacent laundry room without looking overly cluttered or chaotic. I spent $200 in materials, and ordered my plumbing from Ron's online (http://www.ronshomeandhardware.com/511-603HC-1-2-Galvanized-Floor-Flange-p/446903.htm and http://www.ronshomeandhardware.com/563-180HC...). Check out the step-by-step tutorial on my blog.

*note* this is a very "tippy" cart. I decided to anchor mine to the wall with L-brackets to keep it from falling on my toddler. You can make it wider or shorter to prevent this, or nix the castors and anchor it to the wall.

    What a great idea! And if you don't need the cart anymore, you could fill the shelves with books! :)

    Nice---I have something very similar in laundry room for same reason and it is handy and out of sight---mine was bought---never thought to make.
