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!

Rena Noele on Sep 01, 2016LOVE IT! Looking through the laundry room makeovers, I can never understand why anyone would want front loading appliances down on the floor. This is VERY smart and economical. The stores charge outrageous amounts for the metal drawers that rattle when the machine is running. Well done!
Jack Snodgrass on May 22, 2017I did something a little less pretty but dirt cheap. I took a solid core door, cut it to length ( it was already 32" wide.. I cut it down to 64"x32" and put it on top of 12, 8" cinder blocks. 4 on each end and 4 down the middle. It's up enough that I can get a laundry basket under each side.The only issue I have is that when the washer gets it's load out of wack.. it tends to 'walk' on the smooth door surface. I got to it one time when the front foot fell over / off of the platform. The washer had too many towels... if I can figure out how to make sure it never falls off, I'll be happy.
