Learn to Build a Rolling Laundry Cart from Lowe’s


Create a useful laundry sorting station by
building these clever rolling carts. There’s pretty minimal prep for this stash and stow sorting project. Each cart breaks down into some really basic
assemblies, that sort of ‘slip’ together. Start by building two u-shaped surrounds. All
the pieces have straight cuts — which makes them really easy to put together. Put a piece
of scrap (cut to the correct size) between the sides. It helps keep the parts aligned
correctly while you’re working. When you’re done gluing and nailing, you’ll end up with
two identical assemblies. Now, add the bottom piece for the cart. Then you can build the two side-frames using the same process you used for the surrounds. Slip a side frame into the cart bottom, and glue and nail it into place. Add the second side frame the same
way, then flip this whole piece, and slip it into the second surround. The flat surface
keeps the pieces flush, then you can glue and nail. Lay the cart on it’s back and glue and nail
the front piece. Let that dry, and prime and paint the whole thing. Add a pull and some casters and the final touch is the decal. It’s cut from plain old
shelf liner, a great DIY decal solution. You can download our symbols which are taken from the care
tags on clothes or come up with your own system. Slip some plastic garbage cans into the carts
and you’ve got the perfect way to corral your dirty laundry.
