Towels On Display – DIY Rustic Shelves

Rustic Towel Shelf

Do you ever find that there is just not enough space in the bathroom to store all things toiletry and if only you could put all those bulky towels somewhere different, you’d have a place to put everything else? I found the perfect solution – a do-it-yourself shelving unit!  I have so many places I could use a shelf like this.  Thank you Remodelaholic for the brightly colored diagrams and step-by-step instructions.
