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!

Happy Friday!

  1. Your nursery is so nicely decorated - it's so calm while keeping a lot of fun elements.

    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!

  4. WOW! This is one of the coolest things that I have seen in awhile!!!
    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

  6. 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!

  9. LOVE IT!
    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!
    Miss you!

    (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! : )

  11. 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 !!!!!!

  33. Assignments are one thing that almost every student wants to skip during their academic years. But unfortunately, they cannot. As a result, many of them struggle to overcome this arduous task by getting external study help. And if you cannot do this independently, you can get paper help. One way is to read out loud. The academic experts deploy this procedure. You can also change the font colour of your assignment, the font style and then print the content out or read it backwards. When you proofread or edit your content, you should look for more than just deleting the spelling mistakes. Here is a handy checklist of things you should notice if you do not delegate your task to an assignment editor.
