Bath racks

32

It took me some time to realize that if I turned one of my smaller pallet wine racks upside down, it could become a bath rack.  Since most people don’t store their wine glasses in the bathroom (but I won’t judge you if you do), I wanted to have a different wooden shelf at the top instead of a glass rack. Fortunately, I had an unused pallet to play with and test this out.

I ripped the pallet in half lengthwise and then cut three racks per piece where the pallet naturally curves in. By drilling a hole in either side of the small end of the pallet piece, just wide enough for the towel rod to go through, the look is almost complete. For the bath racks, I set the top shelf down an inch so that bath items can be stored and secured above the towel rack. In this case, I used a piece of reclaimed barn wood for a wider, lower shelf:

I love how functional these are.  It’s small enough that it can fit almost any bathroom wall, and it’s lightweight. The bath rack can hold two hand towels or one bath towel set. Plus, the shelf is extremely practical for lotions, perfumes, candles, etc.  Available in natural or walnut finish and various towel rods.
