Making your own clothes line

My husband chopped down bamboo, made two tri-pods and constructed a clothes line for me. I’d been begging for one and bamboo is marvelous, you really can make so many things from it.




The line was perfect, and though a tad tall, not an eye sore at all. In the middle of the city, we’re hidden behind a fence anyway. It functioned well and I absolutely adored it and used it constantly.

Then it fell over.


And again.

And again.

So, he tied clothes line between a palm tree and a 2nd tree.


It’s working like a charm. It’s so hot here, the clothes are dry in minutes.

Never have I seen a prettier site than itty-bitty underwear all strung up to dry in the hot Florida sun.


So precious.

    I made a clothes line in my garage. It’s right in front of my washer and like you said the clothes dry in minutes. Saves on electricity bill! See you next month!

  3. Awww… sorry to hear about the fall over factor but a nice solution all up.

    As a fellow warm place dweller, I do a single peg in knickers and boxers – they dry in these warm climates without another peg!

  4. I just love clotheslines. Towels are so much more absorbent when dried on the line. And watching sheets flap in the breeze…the best. Then there is the sun-dried aroma, too.

  5. Thanks for your comments guys! Clothes line still going on into the winter. Ha!

Tell me what you think. I don't get to answer comments like I did before baby but I read every single comment. And they really make my day!
