The dishwasher eventually took up most of this space, but there was just enough room for a towel rack to go on the left.
DIY Built-In Towel Rack
During my kitchen remodel, I had a bit of extra space between the sink and the dishwasher... the perfect place for a pull-out towel rack to go!
I started by making the front piece. I used scrap plywood and mdf, gluing them together to create a thicker, sturdier piece.
I added paint and a knob, and the front was ready to go!
Then I worked on the sides of the rack. These were just plywood pieces that I attached the drawer slides to. I placed two pocket holes on the end in order to eventually attach the sides to the front.
The second half of the drawer slides was added to the sink cabinet.
Then I reattached the drawer slide pieces together, and secured the front to the sides with pocket holes.
I thought the frame needed some reinforcement, so I added another piece of plywood at the back of the frame, as well as some corner braces between the front piece and the side pieces.
Finally, I screwed on the towel rack, and it was done!
