Laundry Chute

When we moved into this house we started to do a lot of renovations. One of the first was to take the 70's gold tile off the main bathroom wall. Since this bathroom is right over the laundry room it was the perfect time to install a laundry chute. It just so happened that in our February 2000 issue of The Family Handyman Magazine they had the directions on how to do-it-yourself.
For a door for the chute I found this unfinished magazine rack at a craft store. We painted it, put hinges on one side and a little latch on the other side. The chute is just duct work that is run down between the studs in the wall.
Down in the laundry room we put up a wire shelf above the dryer with a basket to catch the clothes. I decorated the metal chute with a sample swatch of some wallpaper border.

For the website for the magazine go to:

They have an article index that can help you find the information you need. Some back issues are still available or you can purchase a photocopy of the article you want. For the article index go to:
