2. Measure and Mark the Wood

Using your measuring tape, mark the plank of wood at the 4-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch marks. These measurements will ensure your towel organizer is perfectly spaced.

    Are the towels pictured actually bath towels? I could not decide if they were hand or bath towels. This is a great idea, either way, but I need space for bath towels. Thanks in advance for your answer.

    Ok when they’re dry but not when they’re wet!

    Was looking at the space allowed between wall and bars . My towels are too thick to roll and place in the space allowed . Placing a 2×2 on the bar holders then attaching to the wall gives ample room for plush towels .
