Have you ever priced one of these things??? UGH! If you ever thought about buying a rack for this purpose, you will know they cost between $250 and $700 largely variable for size and quality. On a scale of 1-10 on how hard this was to make, this one is a ONE. All you need is a saw (or someone to cut four 6 inch long pieces), and a drill.
This drying rack has 8 three foot long bars so I can dry anywhere between 8 and 24 paintings at a time, depending on the size of them. Cost for this was $0 and the time it took me to make it was 20 minutes.
I got the side rails for the crib from someone who turned the rest of theirs into a bed when their child outgrew the crib. One man’s garbage is this girl’s happiness! These two sides, and the four pieces of 2×2 cut to SIX inches in length were all it took. I drilled holes through the sides into the 2×2 (to keep the 2×2 from splitting, screwed them together, and that was it.
The only drawback to my free one is that it can’t be folded up and tucked away… but you could hang a blanket on it and leave it in your bedroom or use it for a magazine rack. it is only 7 inches wide so, it does not take a lot of space and so it could even go in the hallway.
Mine will always be in use! I am glad to have one and happier still because it was FREE!
