Was just thinking that I need to make one of these for our laundry closet. Small space needs something that doesn't have to be stored elsewhere. DIY Laundry Room Drying Rack by Folds flat when not in use.
Countertop above washer and dryer so if I ever have a washer and dryer in a closet I can do this and have room to fold stuff. And I am sure it would be easy to do part of the table hinged for my top loading washer.
