DIY Project Ideas: 10 Laundry Drying Racks

I air-dry all of my dresses, my underthings, and anything that could be considered a "favorite" — which means that there are often damp clothes covering every surface in my laundry room...and my bathroom...and my kitchen chairs. Time to make one of the following much-more-elegant solutions!

  1. IKEA towel bar rack by Hope, Longing, Life, $39.99
  2. Overhead ladder rack by Little Lucy Lu, $10 + ladder
  3. Rope rack by Brittany Watson Jepson for Design*Sponge
  4. Crib spring rack by A Diamond In The Stuff
  5. Flat-folding rack by Centsational Girl, $25 + paint
  6. The Pulley Rack by Lucy AitkenRead for World Sweet World Magazine
  7. Ingenious magnetic rack by Chez Larson
  8. PVC pipe rack by Korey Atterberry's Idle Chatter, $2
  9. Crib rack by You Can Call Me Gwen
  10. Finally, HGTV features a simple branch behind their washer and dryer.
