I know, I haven't been on here in a millennium but really I had slowed down my crafting for the last while and now I've started again.

So, I saw this cloth dryer a long time ago in one a Martha Stewart Living and never forgot about it until last week I decided to finally do it. Unfortunately I couldn't find the instructions for it in the magazine and I couldn't find the mag I'd seen it in so I figured out how to make it. Thank God I have a well equipped in tools so all I needed was the lumber and hardware. It turned out great in spite of a few mishaps. I also wrote the instructions as I went along along with some final thoughts on the topic. Hope you like it.

The links for the tute. My blog is both in French and English so if you get to a page and it starts in French, just scroll down:

What a great idea for not a lot of space!  Inexpensive too, I'll bet.

I am so glad you posted this!  I have a portable washer, and no dryer, and it seems our collapsible is always out, and things are hanging from everywhere possible!  I am def. going to make some of these!

Thanks to all!

In my bathroom, on the wall just above my bathtub.

Now I'm trying to figure out how to convert my little stand up dryer into parts and hang them from somewhere. Maybe the back side of the house. Hmmm.
