Are you familiar with Ana White? If not, please take a few moments to browse around her site. She is a mom who does all kinds of do-it-yourself projects from bookshelves (love the library cart!) to stools to…
Oh yes, a laundry dresser. And isn’t it one of the most beautiful laundry sites you’ve ever seen? I just adore it. The design was simply a stroke of genius.
Ana gives you step-by-step instructions on how to build this functional, yet super cute laundry dresser. Assign a basket to each member of your family for housing clean or dirty clothes. Assign a basket to hold specific items – ie: one for socks, one for t-shirts, etc. – and use it literally as a dresser. Use it to store seasonal items like blankets or to store linens, towels and washcloths or sheets.
Or you could use it for a completely different purpose than laundry: sewing and craft supplies, a toy bin in the kids’ room, or storage in the garage.
The laundry and household possibilities are endless!
And if you were as much of a laundry dork as I am, you’d even use your labeler to assign the baskets on your newly crafted laundry dresser.
My new friend Caroline from The Modest Mom must have a fabulous husband since he made her these for Christmas!! Oh be still my beating heart – what a perfect gift! (Well, for me anyway…) Here is her hubby’s fine craftsmanship:
The comments on the laundry dresser how-to post have wonderful ideas about how to get the most practical use from this project, so make sure to take a peek at those too.
