How to Turn a Door Into a Laundry Room Table #DIY #BuildIt
In our house we have had a laundry room that was right off of the kitchen. It was a really long room (not very wide) and we ended up having pantry shelves in it to use it for a second pantry. I didn't have any kind of table to fold clothes on and it drove me crazy!! I need somewhere to put the clothes when I'm folding them. So our solution- we built a table out of a door to put over the washer and dryer! It worked great and I love it!
We started with a door, we got a cheap one for about $20. We used a door because it's lighter and cheaper than regular wood.
The door was held up with 2x4s, so we put those onto the wall.
Then we built a shelf for the other side of the washer, that will support the table too.
We then put the door onto the shelf.
I wanted a fun pop of color, so I painted it turquoise.
Then we put some molding onto the door, to give it a nice finish.
I then painted the top of the table to match my decor.
And that's it!! Super easy to make and I love how it looks! Plus it's nice to have more shelves in my laundry room! For more details and step by step instructions, check out my blog post.
