Here’s my simple laundry room shelf. I went cheap and easy. It’s made from un-dimensioned pine 1x lumber from Home Depot, before I got hooked on salvaging pallets. I stained it with an Antique Maple gel stain (the flavor that was the most on sale) and finished it with spray-on lacquer. It’s put together with drywall screws.
My goals for this project were for it to be cheap (I’m renting and leaving it when I move) but presentable. I also wanted to explore this shape with cheap wood, and to see what happened when I made something from only a simple pencil sketch, and not a full 3D Sketchup mock-up like I like to sit around and waste time doing. It also needed to hold three roomates’ laundry stuff up off the dryer and out of the way. I think I succeeded on all counts.
