DIY: Laundry Room Drying Rack
I really wanted to save the money and build a laundry rack for Megan.
I knew I could do it with a picture, so I did. Here's my DIY Ballard style Drying Rack.
Here is a Similar one from Centsationalgirl Laundry Rack that inspired me.
The Laundry Room isn't exactly gigantic, so that more space I could utilize the better!
You are going to need some tools and materials. (Here's What I used)
- Three 1/2 x 2” poplar boards ($5.90) or white board 8 Feet long ($2.67)
- Three 3/8” dowel rods (48” long) ($1.20 each)
- Sheetrock screw system ($2.41)
- White chain with small screw eyes (.68 cents)
- Primer and paint of your choice
- White Paneling with design of your choice. ($9.78)
- Framing Nails and Panel Board nails
- Drill with Bits ( 3/8th's needed for Dowels)
- Rubber Mallet
- Sander with 120 thru 220 Grit Paper
- Jigsaw or other cutting contraption (Ryobi Orbital Saw is $28.00 at Home Depot)
- Tape measure or ruler
