DIY Industrial Bathroom Towel Bar

30 Days of DIY Projects 2 Make Us Thankful

Project 30

This is the final post of our series of projects to make us thankful for DIY.  Thanks for being with us during the month of November for  simple and easy DIY projects! Please be sure to visit again to check out our upcoming December series of great Christmas gifts you can make and give!

It's our way of saying Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at
Simply Easy DIY!

Optimizing space in a bathroom can be quite challenging. Oftentimes navigating the bathroom is like navigating an obstacle course.

Some of the things that you can encounter in a cluttered bath are half hazered towels, messy kids bath toys, just used hot  hairdryers and irons, and a weirdly placed toilet paper holder.

Some bathrooms even have "decor" like free standing statues or fake plants.

No thanks on the fake plants. Too dusty.

How can you improve the design and functionality of your bathroom storage? You could go with a pricey custom cabinet installation. Most of us don't have that kind of budget though.

A better option is to utilize that dead space behind the door where cabinets won't fit anyway.

A thin spot can perfectly fit a nice floating shelf with a lower towel bar. An added bonus: the industrial pipe look is really popular right now.

Check out how Dan over at Kateryna Woodworks shows how it easy it is to make. Also included: all materials and dimensions this project!

Final Thoughts

Worried if that bar might leave marks on your towels? Dan covers that. He cleaned and coated his bar with polyurethane too.

I hope you enjoyed today's featured project and don't forget to stop by "Dan Ridley" YouTube channel to check out even more great woodworking videos from him. Don't forget to subscribe.
