This towel rack isn’t much different than the pallet towel racks we created for the boys bathroom.  We were so happy with how they turned out that we wanted something similar for our kitchen.

Here’s what we did…

Farmhouse DIY Towel Rack

Jason and I love the look of old weathered wood so when we added a window to Tucker’s room we saved a few old boards.  Knowing I wanted the wood to be as wide as our vintage chalkboard (22.5 inches) I cut the board to size.

I pulled out all the nails and staples that were previously on the board.

I only lightly sanded the board in order to keep the 100+ year old character the board had.

Jason helped me screw the board to our kitchen wall.

We made sure to screw the board into the studs on the wall.

Lastly, we added 3 iron hooks I found at Target.

It fits perfectly under our chalk board calendar.

Full disclosure, these hooks will normally be hanging reusable shopping bags, dog leashes, backpacks and aprons but I added hydrangeas and a Longaberger basket purse to make it look pretty for this blog post. 🙂
