We had our old washer starting to leak so we decided to replace them with some new front loaders. I couldn’t bring myself to pay $200 to raise them up so I took a look around my basement for leftover material. I was able to build this for $30 :-) Nothing real fancy, just something that looks nice.

Brandon, that is a nice platform that you built. It is a wonderful use of “scrap” materials and, not only looks better than the pedestals that are commercially available, but it costs significantly less.

Well done!!

We did the same thing last year, bought front loaders but i made something similar. Yours look alot better than mine.

Great idea, never thought of that. Thanks for sharing. Think my laundry room will be a little nicer someday.

I think your “nothing Fancy” and mine are a little out of tune.
Nice work

I built the entire thing from 3/4” plywood aside from the wainscotting and the trim.

Let’s see….it’s a basement. It’s a corner. Nobody will ever see it. But of COURSE it needs to be trimmed out!

An interesting coincidence, the project for this weekend is to build a platform for our new W/D coming on Tuesday and we live in Brandon, Mb.

I did the same thing (actually somewhat similar in appearance) a few years ago. I could not have been happier with the results and I am sure the same is true for you. Good thinking.

That really looks nice, and takes advantage of the front loaders as well.
