This classic pulley design is functional, rustic, and lifts your drying laundry out of sight until ready to be put away. Great for small laundry rooms. I would coat the wood so it can't mildew, which is what wood tends to do from damp laundry.
Guestroom stairs to enter in laundry room or kitchen. Like he pattern on the front of each stair. Stairway of dreams - tiled runners with wood toppers. These stairs would look seriously beautiful in a hallway.
