When we were building there is a company that comes and installs your shower doors, toilet paper holders & towel racks. I didn't like the towel racks that they had, and they were expensive. We are not the kind of family that has fancy towels hanging up on a rack to just look at. If we have a towel it gets used. I decided that I'd just worry about towel racks when we moved in & find something I liked. So I had this idea to "make" them out of these little wall hanging things I found at Hobby Lobby. They were cheap to make, $5.50 each. I think they look ok, but I don't love them. I like them better than just a straight bar towel rack, but not exactly what I had in mind.
Plain hook that will hold two towels.
I just drilled two holes in the bottom of the wood.
