Clothesline "Sculpture" - I can envision putting this at the end of the deck. For evening outdoor gatherings when not in use, put up strings of lights and food/drink table underneath. Or a nice canopy with climbing roses, clematis or other vine flowers.
When the clothes dryer entered the America household in the line-drying soon fell out of vogue and families began to rely on this modern appliance to quickly and easily complete a necessary household chore.
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.
