|Hanging Drying Rack|
|Stairwell showing 3 West Elm Square Shelving Units|
I am currently taking a class online in which we are using self-leveling gel, which can take a week to dry or cute. On Friday I started thinking of options to create a drying area instead of using my work surfaces, which could really put a cramp in working on my next project while waiting for these pieces to dry. What I came up with was a hanging drying rack. Here are the pictures of what I designed.

I bought everything at Home Depot. It cost about $45 and I installed it by myself. The only help from my husband being to close the whole decorator's chain links because I struggled to close the links once I opened them.
Here's my supply list, keep in mind you might need more chain if it hang completely hangs from the ceiling. I had a shelf above that prevented me from having the back 2 connections from the ceiling. They hang off the wall below instead.
- 11 ft. of white decorator chain
- 4 screw-hooks, 4 drywall anchors
- 16-20 small S-hooks (I didn't use them to connect the top most screen to the chain, so I only needed 16)
- 16 small Screw Eyes (I used 1/2" size)
- 3 adjustable screens with wood frames (I used 18" x 21"-37" size)
- 2 pair of pliers
- 1/16 drill bit
- Tape measure
- Hands strong enough to close links after opening them!
