I built this last Christmas for two of my grandsons who are into baseball, basketball, and soccer. My daughter had commented that they have to change clothes for each sport so the bedroom is wall-to-wall clothes. I found this project in a book for kid’s furniture. Got the book at a used book store. The orange is official University of Tennessee color. A clothes basket goes on the shelf so they can slam-dunk their clothes.
BTW, this was the first project above a birdhouse. Turned out pretty good as SWMBO suggested making a couple for Christmas this year and selling them.

This is very cute! I think it needs a “hoop net” to polish it off and complete the effect. Everyone likes the little “woosh” sound

great way to get the clothes off the floor and into the basket.
I like it.
