4. Laundry Room Counter
Avoid heaps of clothes getting piled up on the countertop in the laundry room with just a few little tweaks to the storage space. A more spacious appeal is achieved by getting rid of some lower cabinets in the laundry and replacing the cabinets with beautiful turned table legs to hold the countertop with utmost grace, but only on one side.
The counter top above the legs is actually a reclaimed wood butcher block transformed into the tabletop, retaining its original rustic charm and imperfections in the finished piece as well. The legs add the much-needed contrast to the wooden texture of the counter when painted in Chimney Smoke from Lowe’s.
The other end of the countertop has got a few shelves built underneath, perfect to house rustic baskets that store the small cloths, lost socks and other cluttering items. The space between the shelves and the legs stores wire baskets lined with white cloth. This one shared by Twelve On Main is surely going to make you say I need these vintage baskets in my laundry for all those rolled up hand towels and washcloths right now.
