Re-Clutter your Life (#Terraintober Immersion marker Project) Part 14 – A Washing Line

This Part 14 of a series of a fair few posts, Part 1 (link here) gives an overview and the philosophy applied to the series – cheap, simple and fun.

Mum used to make these big washings and hang them to dry, I used to pretend I was a musketeer fighting between the white bed linen, like in the 1974 version of the Three Musketeers – the one with York, Reed, Chamberlain and Finlay (not to forget Lee, Welch, Dunaway and Heston). Here is the fantastic clip.

Today we are going to do a washing line with some washing drying, here a brief description.

I did not takes picture until halfway through, basially this is using a single line between two kebab sticks and one with a coffee stirrer plank allowing a double line. I end add a small structure to glue onto to allow the sewing thread to be saggy like on clothes line (attached with superglue in stages).
For the sheets I use rice paper, this is really easy to work with feels like something you could roll cigarette with if you are so inclined or have some lying around. I guess normal paper or even some cloth may work too.
Paint the base set-up. Then brush glue on both sides and try to create something resembling items flying in the wind – also cover the “Structure”.
Let it dry
The paint it up, I am more happy with the single line, it looks less messy but hey ho.
That is spot on – me thinks
Maybe too much going on? Anyway you get the idea. Simple but adding some drama.

And that budget, well we are still at £17.93 we are almost half way through, will we be able to contain this within the £30 limit (yes we will but I might add some items to spice it up a little bit)

Tomorrow we are doing some boxes (back to the 2 minute clutter approach), sleep tight.

/ Hope that was of some interest
