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.
Use a precut wood plaque for the base (you can find them at any craft store) and screw in a mismatched jumble of painted hooks. Perfect right next to the door for keys, scarves, umbrellas and more. Cute for Maggie's room!
