One of my favorite places in our house is our master bathroom. We had it renovated last summer and it is bright, beautiful and modern. This room is full of beautiful large windows which bring in amazing light but there is very little wall space. There is not a single spot to hang towels. After brainstorming how to solve this problem, I thought of this rolling DIY Towel Rack. I needed it to hold a few towels at a time and to be able to move it around the bathroom, hence the casters. It’s a quick and easy build and I can’t wait to show you. Here is all the information you’ll need to build one yourself!

- (5) 2″x2″x8′ Boards
- Miter saw
- Sander and sandpaper
- Pocket hole jig
- 1 1/2″ Pocket screws
- Wood glue
- Casters and small screws
Here is a diagram of the suggested cuts you may want to make.
The first thing to do is cut all of your boards to size. Then sand them until they are completely smooth. (if you have a planer this is much easier, just plane each side.)
Here is the diagram of the entire free standing DIY towel rack assembled with corresponding measurements. I used pocket holes to assemble this towel rack as you will see below.
You will be joining each board to the other by drilling pocket holes with a pocket hole jig and using pocket hole screws to attach them, as pictured.
Assemble the lower rectangle first. Then you will assemble each of the upper rack sections. Finally, you will attach the racks to the base rectangle.
Lastly, attach casters to the bottom by predrilling holes where you want it to go, then screwing them on. Because this is not a heavy piece of furniture and it will not hold a lot of weight, I chose to use small casters.
Once your rolling towel rack is fully assembled, just like the diagram shows, you will want to paint or stain your project. I chose to paint mine white and just used white acrylic paint.
Finished! A beautiful, rolling DIY towel rack!
Now just add your towels!
It is very easy to move this mobile DIY Towel Rack around the large bathroom, just as I’d hoped. I am absolutely thrilled with how this project turned out!
I hope you like this project as much as I do! I’d love if you’d share it on social media by pinning this image to Pinterest or sharing using the buttons floating on the left of the screen.
Thanks so much for reading!
Beautiful! I just wish I had the space for a nice big towel rack like this. Our towels always take a long time to dry because we have to use a small rack so they end up all bunched up and dry super slowly.
