Brass porthole cover for a laundry chute

Songwriter Allee Willis installed this fab brass porthole cover on her laundry chute. I am tempted to install a laundry chute just so I can follow suit.

As much as I love these they're not my favorite porthole around here. That honor is reserved for my $11 used-to-be-a-flimsy-brass-mirror porthole that I sunk into the floor and now serves as my laundry chute.

My laundry chute porthole was featured in the Los Angeles Times twice last year alone. When I get completely frustrated writing, painting, making films, curating and everything else I fill my time with I always think I could go into the business of selling porthole laundry chutes.
