How to Make an Anthropologie-Inspired Laundry Hamper

WARNING: Corny joke ahead!

A young couple moved into a new neighborhood.

The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hanging her laundry outside.

“That laundry is not very clean,” she says. “She doesn’t know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”

Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

Every time her neighbor would hang her laundry to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, “Look, she has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder how that happened?”

The husband said, “I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows.”

Ahahahahahahahahahahaha! Knee slappin’ funny!

Well……… all joking aside, because we all know that laundry is no laughing matter, but

what do you get when you cross some trendy new fabric with some wooden dowels and an old belt?

Why, this new functional and chic laundry hamper, of course! Perfect for the halfway point between your closet full of cute clothes and the laundry room.

I’m really diggin’ this hamper. 🙂 And I hope you like it, too.
