I created this beautiful, heavy duty and inexpensive DIY towel rack for our farmhouse kitchen in less than an hour. Sharing my simple step by step instructions for how to make a towel rack of your own to hang coats, aprons, bags, baskets and towels, of course!
Farmhouse DIY Towel Rack for the Kitchen

When I shared how we brightened up our eat in kitchen last week I was missing something.
Our new farmhouse DIY towel rack.
I was so excited to share all of our kitchen progress that I couldn’t wait till I hung up our towel rack, ha!
Here’s what we did…
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. 🙂
We are currently STILL painting more of the ceiling and shiplap walls in our kitchen but I hope to share another update of our farmhouse kitchen renovation with you guys soon!
