More Laundry Room Love

The weekend is almost here! For me that means more work on my laundry room makeover (pictures to come!) . Though my beluga beige countertop is already purchased, I found this GREAT idea from The Style Dept.'s Suzanne Dimma's files:

Here is a great project to convert the top of your washer and dryer into an ironing surface.

  • 5/8” Thick MDF (or plywood)
  • 1” Upholstery foam
  • Spray adhesive
  • Heat-resistant fabric
  • Staple gun
  • Measuring tape
  • 2-3 Small L-brackets and screw

  • Measure the surface space of washer and dryer
  • Cut MDF board according to size of space
  • Apply spray adhesive to one side of board
  • Apply upholstery foam on top of board (cutting excess foam off so it is the same size as the board)
  • Lay fabric over the foam, using upholstery-style technique, staple fabric to board
  • To eliminate movement, use 2-3 small L-brackets evenly spaced to secure the board to wall
Tada! A beautiful, multi-purpose counter top!!
