Pedestals Modified

Submitted by cloerzel on Thu, 11/20/2014 - 05:34

Basically eliminated the bottom shelf to gain more space and built this as a "built-in". Fortunatley for us this room is the right size and we just screwed it into the wall studs.

Estimated Cost
Materials 37.00*
Paint 15.00
*I discovered that if you pick-out a piece of cabinet-grade plywood from Home Depot, and it has some flaws in it (peeling veneer), they will spray paint a purple stripe across it and you get it 70% off!!!
Since I was painting it anyways, that purple paint didn't matter. Thanks Home Depot!!!
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
3/4 plywood

Thanks for the money saving tip on the plywood!

I have upper cabinets in my laundry room too and was wondering how to get a storage pedestal in there.  This is a great use of space.  Looks great too. Thanks!

Did you also fasten ledger boards to the side walls for side support? Or is the rear ledger board and front legs enough to support the front corners?
