After singing the praises of air-drying the laundry over at Apartment Therapy, I couldn't help but think of drying herbs in the kitchen. While my tiny herb garden requires nothing close to an entire free-standing rack, a small rail like this one could do the job while looking beautiful in the kitchen.
If you don't grow herbs, drying leftover store-bought ones is a great way to preserve them, or the wooden rack can also be used as a utensil rail. We're loving the Shaker-like simplicity of this design and imagine it would be fairly simple to DIY something similar.
