Akurum Laundry Sorter


I wanted a laundry sorter that also functions as a tv stand for my bedroom. I screwed together three Akurum cabinets and created a base for extra stability. I used shorter Harlig doors to leave space at the top to toss clothes. I bought a couple slats of pine wood to create the top doors and frame. The top doors were spray painted white to match the Harligs.

The knobs are also from Ikea. Using wood glue I affixed a piece of beveled trim to the top for a bit of design, then sanded and stained the frame a glossy black. I decorated the cabinet with a wall decal and attached a set of wheels for easier mobility on carpet. For the interior I just attached small adhesive hooks and hung the laundry bags. Now I just lift out the bags and I’m ready to do laundry, presorted. The plus is that I now have a stand for my television and whatever else.
