DIY Your Own Budget
Storing your bathroom towels in a linen closet outside the bathroom isn't always practical. If you forget to grab a towel on the way to the bathroom, you have to go back to get one. Yet, if your bathroom doesn't have enough space to store your towels, where are you going to put them? Installing a towel rack with multiple slots in your bathroom will solve all your towel-related problems. A DIY towel rack will save you money instead of buying one. TikTok user @homegoodiys showed how she made a budget-friendly towel rack from items she bought at Dollar Tree. She used wire cabinet shelves and zip ties to assemble the towel rack and attached command hooks to mount it on the wall.
The DIY towel rack offers a way to hold your bath towels and adds a touch of personality and texture to the bathroom. It can fit in any size bathroom without taking up too much wall space. Plus, if you know how to properly fold your towels, they will look more organized. You won't have to worry about remembering to grab a towel from the linen closet or fill the sink's lower cabinet with towels. Your new DIY towel rack will be one of your favorite projects.

The DIY towel rack that TikTok user @homegoodiys made holds four regular-sized towels. They look clean and sleek when they're rolled into a well-tucked burrito. You'll need two Dollar Tree cabinet shelves, zip ties, scissors, and clear command hooks. The TikToker spray-painted her towel rack black before hanging it up, so you could spray-paint it any color that fits your bathroom's interior. Or, if you enjoy the all-white look, leave the rack as is.
Start by putting one shelf on top of the other. Each shelf has 14 rows; you'll want to place one shelf halfway, seven rows down, from the top to get four equal-sized slots. Next, tie one zip tie in each of the four corners where both shelves connect, pulling them tightly. Cut the zip ties' extra hanging piece as close to the insert as possible. Then, bend each leg slightly upward to create a slant so the towels don't easily roll off the rack. Spray paint the rack with your choice of color and let it air dry. If you don't want to paint it, move on to the next step. Attach the command hooks to the wall, placing them where you want your rack to go. Finally, hang the towel rack and place your towels in each slot.
TikToker @homegoodiys removed the rubber bottoms of each leg, and many comments asked her why. She responded to one comment by saying, "You can leave them on, but the ends are smooth and won't tear the towels. I pulled them off so they would look less like Dollar Tree risers" via TikTok. The user who commented was concerned over potential injuries, such as poking their eyes, and claimed they would leave the rubbers on for safety precautions. However, you can decide to leave or remove the rubber ends.
Another tip: If you don't have enough wall space to hang your towel rack in your bathroom, try hanging it on the back of the door if it's vacant. You won't have to worry about removing other shelving or décor in your bathroom. Ensure everyone is careful when opening the bathroom door so the rack or towels don't accidentally fall. On the other hand, if there's no extra wall or door space, one user commented that she placed a wine rack on top of her toilet to hold her towels. So, you could always thrift a wine rack if this DIY throne towel doesn't work out for your bathroom.
