Backyard Makeover on a Budget – Clothesline

  1. Andie says:

    I was so excited to see your post about the clothes line. I finally felt like I had a connection to you guys! I also love to hang my sheets, etc outside and didn’t think about making the line pretty till I saw your post and then followed you in Pinterest to see those pictures. Anyways, have a another project for my husband to put up! ???? thanks

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahaha yay. I’m excited about all of our new projects at the new house… this being one. Enjoy.

      In my younger days, hanging clothes outside to dry was just the normal thing to do. One doesn’t see that any more, sadly. I loved hanging towels out side, they always had that fresh air scent, even though the kids complained how scratch they were. Oh, and the sheets were heavenly when crawling onto a fresh outdoor scented bed. You’ve brought back some good memories of the good old days, Thank You<3

    I love hanging clothes on the line. But many people do this anymore or their HOA doesn’t allow it. I’d much rather dry things on our clothesline in the summer than turn on the dryer.

    I grew up with clotheslines, my kids did too, and I really miss one in our latest house. Husband syas hell put up a retractable one for me soon. Hah! His idea of soon is different than mine. There raw a few hanging chains from planters in the back yard on the roof line, I can get a few hangers on each one and I call that a clothesline for now.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yes.. every house I have to have something. The retractable ones have worked at our last three homes, but I LOVE a real old fashioned clothesline.

    Looking great!!! I grew up with clothesline poles and had them at first house but it quickly lost its appeal to me when kids came and time was short. My mom still hangs things up occasionally ❤️

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yes, I totally understand about the kids thing. I usually only hang my sheets and bedding.. and Ivy’s blankeys.

  5. Lori Harmon says:

    When I was really little I remember my Mom hanging sheets on the close line. I remember more of my Grandma in Kentucky using a clothesline. Bedding smelled so good. I’m glad you’re going things to the backyard to make it feel a little more homey.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Yes… That was the simple way of living back then. And, I am too. We are outside every moment we can be.

    Love the old fashioned appeal of a clothesline, it’s been many years since I’ve used one and when I did it was totally out of necessity. You may have inspired me to see if I can get the ol’ ball & chain ????to put on up for me!!
    Only for warmer months though, too many memories of frozen laundry on the line in the dead of winter… not fun and not pretty ????.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahahahahahah I remember my ex-MIL telling me when she was little they would hang clothes out and let them freeze dry. LOL

  7. Wendy says:

    I could not live without a clothesline either! The amazing smell of fresh lime dried sheets is the best scent ever!! And guess what??? My clothesline has to be pretty too!! I wish I could attach a picture of it to show you. It’s white wood posts in the traditional T shape but then we added ornate wrought iron corbels for the corners and painted them white as well. I also only use white rope for my lines and I replace them every spring!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh my gosh… Yours is one I would LOVE. Do you just use the real rope lines? I’ve never used those.

  8. Cindy says:

    Nothing beats the smell of sheets and blankets dried on a clothesline. Your whole bedroom smells fresh and clean!!❤️❤️❤️????????

    I have always had a clothesline. I hang all of my clothes, all the time, either indoor or out depending on the weather. But…. now I need to make my clothesline pretty. Ahhh, another reason my husband dislikes you gals and Pinterest. He says y’all give me way too many ideas ????????????????. And he’s right, but at least they are GOOD ideas. ????????????

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      hahahaha Awwww…. Yes, did you see those ones on my Pinterest boards? I cannot wait to get to our new house and get some fun projects going.
