Birds on a Laundry Wire: Clever Outdoor Clothesline Design

Some of us prefer to hang our clothes on the line to avoid shrinking them in the dryer. A retractable indoor clothesline can work but if you have space for it a backyard wire is best – between a pair of poles or posts – but can also be a bit boring design-wise when not in use.

A slight designer twist, like this idea by Fabian van Sprecklsen, can make these dull and simple wires into a bit of clever yard art.

Inspired by the classic rural (and sometimes urban) image of a bird on a wire, each post is designed to look like a power line and bird-shaped clips to hold your clothes in place. Who knows, perhaps the real birds will even drop by for a visit (just be sure to bring the laundry in before they do!).
