I created this beautiful, heavy duty & inexpensive DIY towel rack for our farmhouse kitchen in less than an hour. Sharing my step by step instructions for how to make a simple & easy DIY 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!
Supplies & Tools Needed to Make a DIY Towel Rack
Our DIY Towel Rack is 22.5 inch Wide by 10.5″ Tall by 4″ Deep (Including the Hooks)
Reclaimed Wood Board
Saw & Hammer (to cut the board & pull out any nails)
We were so happy with how they turned out that we wanted something similar for our kitchen.
Step By Step Instructions for How to Make a DIY Towel Rack
Step ONE – Cut your Reclaimed Wood to Size
Knowing I wanted the reclaimed 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.
Step TWO – Sand the Reclaimed Wood
I only lightly sanded the board in order to keep the 100+ year old character the board had with our orbital sander.
Step THREE – How to Hang a DIY Towel Rack
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.
I hope this inspires you to create a DIY towel rack for your home!
