It's janky but it will work!

You could double up on tiers if you had more ceiling material.

Looks rough, but racks don't win any awards...well, not screen racks anyway.

If it works and you're happy, nice work.  Better than leaning them on everything.

just make sure it's stable. Nothing worse than having a rack fall apart, and pop ever screen on the rack.

Question (from the newbie), do you dry screens screen side up or down?

Don't get the particle board wet! Otherwise, it should work :)

Or hit it with some paint, or varathane or varnish, or similar water-resistant coating.

Pretty only counts in beauty pageants, if it works it works.
Next time you get the handy man urges think aboit using some 2 x 4's space and drill thm to accept a short lengtn of 3/4 " PVC
pipe . Can be 8 foot high and hold a crap load of screens..
Best of all will cost you less than30 bucks .here is a picture of the inside of my dry cabinet using 3/4" pvc pipe pieces for the supports.Same idea will work for a 2 x 4 as the sides of my dry cabinet.

Great for starters. Use it until you have time to put together something that will hold screens more efficiently. Make sure you can dry shirt side down without snagging the mesh. And... casters! Even if the rack almost never moves, I find it's really helpful to have casters so that moving is easy when necessary, even if loaded with screens.
Nice guys laugh last.
