By no stretch of the imagination is this fine furniture, but this laundry basket dresser will help my wife keep the laundry room organized. At least that’s what she told me. Who am I to argue? Overall, the piece is made from recycled pallet wood—mostly oak—sanded and ready for staining. The rails and top are pine. It took me most of one day to cut, sand and assemble. I think this scored me some major brownie points, too. ;-)

Nothin wrong with scoopin up a few brownie points. It looks like it will help things out in the laundry room.

That is really neat. I’ll have to make one once we get this big dining room table out of our laundry room.
Thanks for sharing…...............Jim

This would make great toy storage. I might have to build a version for my kids.

Simple, functional & the wife is happy. It doesn’t get much better.

Thank you all for the views and comments. It really was quite simple. A few friends are now requesting that i build one for them, either for clothes or toys. Enjoy!
