Laundry Chute Cabinet
When we decided to renovate a storage room in our house that looked like this:
and turn it into a nursery that now looks like this:
we discovered that the room was directly above our laundry room. Hubs came up with the fantastic idea to install a laundry chute so that I don't need to drag the dirty wash from the upstairs to the laundry room which is downstairs and at the back of the house.
So he built a cabinet from scratch and installed it in the nursery as a place to throw the laundry down the chute.
It was a tedious process to make a hole through the concrete floor, but the hubster is very capable and can do just about anything, in my opinion!
I made some labels and used glass knobs that I bought at Hobby Lobby. There's a slot for light colors, dark colors, and cloth diapers, so it's already sorted when I need to do the laundry. I feel totally spoiled now when it's laundry day!
And, of course, I had to do some kind of decorative painting on the cabinet! I was inspired by a design from Uppercase Living and painted it on freehand.
The green color I used to paint the cabinet is called Ivy League by Benjamin Moore.
It was finished just before baby Violet was born, which was perfect timing! And I just love it!

Your nursery is so nicely decorated - it's so calm while keeping a lot of fun elements.ReplyDelete
Can you, um, post photos of the other end of the laundry chute? I'm looking for inspiration on how to nicely handle the one in my own home. Thanks!
Genius AND beautiful, just like hubby and YOU!ReplyDelete
The laundry chute cabinet is gorgeous... probably the prettiest made-from-scratch furniture piece I have seen in a long time. Gotta love useful things that loook pretty, too!ReplyDelete

WOW! This is one of the coolest things that I have seen in awhile!!!ReplyDelete
And your ability to handpaint it.....yep, I hate you :)
I have a laundry chute. Except it doesnt have a hole that takes it to the laundry room. Its a hamper - hahaha. And for some reason the lids must be broken on all 3 of them because noone seems to be able to make it INSIDE the hamper. LOL
This is seriously so beautiful. What a brilliant idea! I just love everything about it...the stencil, the knobs, the labels, etc!ReplyDelete
Awesome! I'm jealous. I wish I had a place for a laundry chute. My daughter just throws her clothes down from the top of the banister. At least she has LEARNED to look first and call out a warning!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! You and your hubby always come up with the most perfect solutions to any dilemma. Love your decorative touches!ReplyDelete
Welcome! An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that allows your computer to keep running for at least a short time when the primary power source is lost. Thanks!
You are jealous of my skinny-ness and I am jealous of your laundry shoot, I'd die for that. No more Saturday's spent dragging loads of laundry to our basement. Oh sweet heaven!
(ps - not trying to loss more weight. Saw your comment on the blog. I am still running and the pounds just keep falling off. I guess that is good, but I am trying to figure out how to balance out my weight and not loss any more! Girl, you just had a baby, give it time. you'll get there!)
Cheers to being thin again & to laundry shoots! : )
oh Aimee~~first of all i'm so proud of your hubby and this beautiful work of art!! (and the timing of it all)!! No year of waiting for this baby!!ReplyDelete
Here's to hoping that Jack doesn't get anymore *grand* ideas! Oh dear!!
Thinking of you as you adjust to your new normal!!
Love that laundry shoot!ReplyDelete
Sorry to disagree with everyone, but this is an awful idea! Laundry chutes and children are a terrible terrible mix. They can be very dangerous when naturally adventurous children go exploring. Putting one in a child's room is just crazy and asking for a disaster to happen !!!!!!ReplyDelete

I wanted to share my own experience with returning air mattress to walmart. It's funny how these things come up! My family and I recently went on a camping trip, and we brought an air mattress for added comfort. Unfortunately, the mattress developed a leak and was completely unusable. We were hesitant about returning it to Walmart, as we had already used it on our trip, but we decided to give it a try.
To our surprise, Walmart's return policy was very accommodating, and we were able to return the mattress without any issues. The process was quick and easy, and we were even able to get a refund for the mattress. It's always nice to hear about positive experiences with customer service, and I'm glad that Walmart was able to help us out in our time of need.
Thank you for sharing your laundry chute cabinet project, and I'm excited to try it out for myself. Keep up the great work on your blog
