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.
Build this in the mud room at the back door. So I can wash the dogs, and in the same area rinse the boots off. For when i am working w/ garden chemicals tha i do not want brought into the house build this stand outside the back door.
