I just can't stop myself...

Well, my laundry rack was rusty, and I simply refused to get another one that would go rusty in 5 years, so I made a wooden rack, and then another, and then this little shop was born!

Shop policies

Welcome to Den Souten Boom, the shop where you find everything you need to transform doing laundry from a chore to a feast. Have a look around and don't hesitate to convo me if you have any questions.

I try to make this shop as beautiful as possible. However, as a customer it's important that you should know this shop is a hobby to me. I work as a GP and have 4 children, so sometimes it may take a few days before I answer your mail.

Because the main purpose of this venture is to have fun, I allow myself ample time (4 weeks) to complete and send an order. Usually your order will be shipped sooner than that. If timing is critical to you, just let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
I do my utmost to make my listings representative of the item you will receive. If in spite of this your order is not what you expected, you can send it back within two weeks of receiving it (at your own cost). I will refund the value of your order (not the shipping costs).

Personalized orders cannot be canceled or returned after the samples have been approved!
Payment goes through Paypal. When I receive payment, I'll let you know and get to work on your order. Allow for up to 4 weeks between payment and shipping of your order. If you change your mind before I send your order (this time can range from 1 day to 4 weeks), let me know and I will cancel your order and refund you. Once your order has been shipped the refund policy applies (see below).

Personalized orders cannot be canceled or returned after the samples have been approved!
Your order will be shipped using bpost, the Belgian national postal service.

Paper building instructions or patterns are sent as a normal letter. If your order doesn't arrive or is damaged upon arrival, let me know and I will resend. I ship these items across the globe.

All packages, from small (lavender sachets or peg bags) to large (laundry racks) are sent using bpost, and will get a unique bar code, which will allow you to track your package. These items are NOT insured, and while I do my best to package your order so it survives shipping, I cannot guarantee its safe arrival. I prefer to ship to Belgium and neighboring countries (1), and will also ship within the European Union (2) and even the rest of Europe (3), but no further than that, except for small packages and unique items, like the rainbow racks or personalized rack which may be impossible to come by in your region and very hard to make yourself.

I am not responsible for any added customs fees or taxes

I always encourage customers to consider buying a building plan or pattern and making something yourself. You will save a lot of money on shipping, and you will derive enormous satisfaction out of building something yourself! And you can customize to perfection, of course.

Additional policies and FAQs
I would love to make a custom order, like something in a special color, or lavender sachets with your initials. Convo me for a price.

I will not take bulk orders. If you want 20 laundry racks, or 100 lavender sachets, your will have to fund someone else to make them for you. As a working mother of four, I don't have the time or the inclination to take this kind of orders. Might I suggest buying the DIY instructions and getting to work yourself?
