DIY Wooden Drying Rack
Rarely do I come a across a DIY and think "I need to make that right now". But that was exactly my thought when I saw this simple wooden drying rack on Design*Sponge today. The tutorial is by Brittany Jepsen of The House That Lars Built, she's got a bunch of great tutorials on her blog as well. We have a clothes line in our back yard for drying my actual clothes, but I often wish I had something for drying all the little fabric and lace bits I dye for my embroidery or for drying large volumes of paper prints. Back in college my studio space was criss-crossed with string and yarn that hung all my little fabric bits for projects. I just left them up until I used them, it was a great way to get a feel on colors and also know when I was running low. But now that my "studio space" is also our front bedroom and Nathan's office, I don't have the luxury of such a permanent installation. This drying rack seems like the perfect solution. The multiple lines are perfect for hanging lots of stuff, but the single line for hanging means I would only need two hooks and it could be easily taken down and stored when not in use. Looks like I will be taking a trip to the hardware store today.
