In this particular room, the beadboard and molding goes up 3/4 of the way. http://www.sweetpickinsfurniture.com/2010/03/the-laundry-room.html

I'm curious, why would someone build a stand for a washer and dryer out of MDF? as soon as MDF gets wet, it starts to swell. I have to replace 2 window sills to real wood because the same thing happened.

In order to hold the weight of the washer and dryer, what type of wood is the pedestal made of?

Here is what the homeowner said:

"for the 2x6 frames on the top an bottom just the regular wood that those come in, as well as the 2x4 posts that support the pedestals - just the standard wood that those are normally made for - nothing special.

For the wood that covers the frame, I used MDF, but any wood would be just fine as long as the base is built strong enough"

My husband and I made the same stand for our washer and dryer! Here is the plan we used:

I'm guessing a 1:1 would just be equal parts of white and the color. I know I've done this for some of my clients and it gives you this sort of lightness. Maybe they can make you a test pint first. Hope that helps!

Washer and dryer platforms. This laundry room has both beauty and function. The washer and dryer pedastals were custom built to house laundry baskets.The even better part of this amazingly functional idea is that there are building plans for this project on Ana White.Photo courtesy of Sweet Pickins

4. Pedestal perfect. Ensure an ergonomical and smooth-running operation in your laundry room by building a pedestal for your washer and dryer to eliminate those awkward and painful bending motions.Photo courtesy of Sweet Pickins
