    why could you not drill holes run the change through, then if a picture frame hangs crooked we're on even you could adjust the frame height or angle by simply moving some sort of spacer under the frame to adjust.

    Could you use it to dry flowers for seed?

      Yes, but don't hang out outside as pictured here. The birds will think you packed them a picnic!

    I want to do this for drying my daughters (and sometimes mine) paint projects. Or something we have just mod podged.

    OH YES! I like to dehydrate my herbs. Wanting a way to do it in my camper...this is lightweight, stylish and I can make a cover to keep flies off it as well. Thank you! Blessings to you.
