Build a space-saving wall mounted drying rack for your laundry

Wall Mounted Drying Rack

Not enough space for drying all the laundry? Then make some by mounting a DIY drying rack on your wall!

Some clothes are not meant to be put in the dryer and it’s not always convenient to hang them outside! Sure there are lots of drying racks available. But they take up floor space and need a home when they’re not being used! A wall mounted drying rack is a much nicer solution 🙂
