Hi! It’s Amaryllis here from Ohoh Deco blog.

One thing that helps keep my house tidy is having specific storage for every item. It’s not always easy, especially if you are living in a small space. My bathroom is no exception, there is always a lot of products to organize but not much space to do it in.

It hangs on the wall and also has a ring so that you can hang used towels from it.

HOW TO MAKE A DIY TOWELS STORAGE SHELF

 

Step 1

To know how long you need to cut the plank, roll your towels and place them on the wood. Leave one inch above the towels and about 5 inches under to have enough space to fix the embroidery loop.

You will use the inner part of the loop (the one without the metal stud) to make the towel ring. Place it on the plank, under the towels and mark the centre of the circle on the wood.

Mark and measure where towels and hoop will go on the wood

Step 2

Place the tip of the set square on the mark, and draw a 45 degree angle on the wood to make a tip.

Use a triangle ruler to mark on the wood

Step 3

With the saw cut the wood to make a pointed shape.

Sand the piece, first with a 60 grit paper to remove splinters and then with a 120 grit to give the wood a smooth finish.

Cut the wood to size

Step 4

Stain or paint the wood (feel free to choose the option that fits your decor best) . As the towel storage will be hung in a wet room, don’t forget to finish with a coat of transparent varnish to protect the wood.

I didn’t stain the embroidery loop but I applied a coat of varnish on it too.

Stain the wood with a paintbrush

Step 5

Flip the wood piece over and nail a sawtooth hanger on the back. Measure to ensure you place it on the centre of the board.
 

 
Step 6

Cut a piece of leather of 2 inches width `(or use an old belt). The length of the strap will depends on the towels thickness. Its better work with a longer strap rather than a shorter one.

Pass the end of the strap around the loop and nail it on the board. This can work with any small nails but upholstery ones are prettier.Using a hammer to insert pins into the wood for the towel holder

The loop has to remain a little loose so it’s easy to place and remove the towel. At 1 ½ “ above, place a second row of nails, these will hold the bottom part of the towel rack.

Step 7

Repeat the same step for the two next towels.

Step 8

Once you are done nailing the strap, just cut the extra length. And you are done!
