Making a drying rack

Photo: IKEA.com

Materials: Baby bed Sniglar

Description: For drying our printed candy we needed a drying rack. Of course it is much cheaper and easier to have Ikea make it.

Unfortunately they don’t have such an item in their collection, but if you ignore the Ikea instruction manual and simply try to build the rack in a way you think a rack should be built, this is what you get.

Don’t forget to use a saw and some screws, but you will do so in the future with every item you’ll buy.
