How to Build a Laundry Folding Table

An easy DIY project for creating an efficient laundry room, a laundry folding table is a simple yet effective way to keep it tidy, organized, and efficient. A flat surface provides space for folding clothes and stacking them neatly, while it even makes space available to install an ironing board directly on top. Plus you have space above to hang-dry your laundry!

To create a laundry table that both looks beautiful and feels sturdy, select high-grade lumber such as pine or fir. When purchasing boards, look for those without gouges as this will save money - or build it from reclaimed wood for even greater environmental sustainability!

Building a laundry table using plywood can be an affordable alternative. Before painting it, however, make sure that any rough areas have been smoothed over. Begin with coarse grit sandpaper before moving on to finer grades for a smoother surface finish.

If you don't want to build your laundry table from scratch, another option is buying an independent model instead. Thrift stores and garage sales often sell these at much reduced costs. Many models feature stainless steel construction with foldable legs for storage - perfect for small laundry rooms! In addition, many are also quite light!

If your laundry appliances are side by side, consider installing a laundry room table over them to save space in your laundry room. This strategy works especially well if there's limited room; no extra room has to be created for a separate table!
