Anyone else struggle with the awkward space between their washer and dryer or just have limited space and need to maximize every square inch?! I came up with a DIY solution for maximum storage and function that made me love my laundry space again! Be sure to follow along on my Instagram @thesassybarn and watch my highlight reel “Laundry Cart” to see the whole process!
1x8x8 wood pieces
1x8x4 wood pieces
To kick off this project, I measured the length and width of the opening between my washer and dryer. This is the perfect space to add some additional storage!
Next, I cut my boards to the correct length and width to fit my space using my saw.
Then, I created pocket holes with my Kreg jigand attached the boards to make the basic square structure for my cart. I used screws and wood glue to combine them!
After the base was finished, I built the middle shelf using 1x4 boards. I also added 1x4s to the sides of the cart to form 3 shelves for storage! Be sure to follow along with this build and see a visual of this DIY on my Instagram @thesassybarn !
I again attached everything with my Kreg jigand screws! Once the piece was fully assembled I did a light sanding and stained her Special Walnut, which is one of my favorite stains!
The finishing touch were these cute and functional wheels I added to the bottom so this cart can roll in and out of its space for restocks and cleaning!
I absolutely love how this simple project makes my laundry space functional and almost bearable! If you try it out, be sure to tag me @thesassybarn so I can see your work! Oh, and be sure to check the pockets!
