Across the room sits my wooden barrel (photo top right), hand-cranked flywheel washer from the turn of the century (1900). It still works wonderfully, so I will have it as a back-up if we are without power for an extended period of time.
In the picture on the left, you see an antique grain bin that has been repurposed as a hamper. Its two internal compartments are perfect for separating whites and darks. Above that hangs an antique clothes dryer...which is often used to dry delicates. On top of the grain bin is my grandmother's antique iron and some old shoe molds as well as a bag of French laundry detergent.
Of course there is always the option of taking my washing boards and a bar of vintage laundry soap to the creek and doing the laundry there!
As you enter the laundry room from the garage, there are 4 old shoe molds with their original pegs, which I have fastened to the wall to use for a place to hang your jacket.My life-long love of antiques has paid off....my collections now have the perfect home. And although most are just to look at...they still retain their value in usefullness should I ever need to use them.
