Rebecca Kuenzi @ilovelucylu needed somewhere to hang-dry her clothes without taking over her small laundry room. She immediately found the perfect use for an old wooden ladder. She cut the ladder in half, painted it turquoise and screwed four hooks into the top. She then added chain links and hung it directly from the ceiling. To hang her clothes from the ladder, she added multiple shower curtain hooks to each rail.

Baby gates into laundry drying racks. Now THIS is totally clever! (pinned to upcycled stuff and hh laundry boards) I think this would work SO well, perfect use of old baby gates, and with a minimum of effort. Really genius - I need this!

This is similar to what I want in my LR to dry flat clothes, but with mesh and snap together PVC? Plus several more. DIY: Laundry Room Drying Rack - Centsational Girl

Hang a Drying Bar One of the best things I've ever done for the laundry was install a bar above the washer and dryer. This idea uses a bathroom towel rack, but we actually put a closet rod across the top of our laundry area. It gives me a place to hang dry clothes and somewhere to put them while I'm pulling clothes out of the dryer. Photo and more laundry ideas via Martha Stewart
