Ikea hack : how to hack bathroom towel rail for your kitchen

Featured
I was looking for a rack just large enough for my spice & condiment stands, but I didn't manage to find it.

So I took a Grundtal tower rail, originally made for the bathroom, add to it a piece of openwork steel, and hung it few hooks : and here you are !

all the items on this picture are from Ikea actually :)

How funny : in France these "BATHROOM" towel rails are sold as "KITCHEN" cloth rails !!!!!…

I love it!
nice work but how do you attach the netting to the towel rack? and maybe you should add a supplies list

I used wire fo attach the netting tothe towel rack. Actually you should be able to see it on photo2
I would actually just add an extra pull/bar across, like in between the two steel bars. Something of the same color or material, wouldn't matter really though, well because... it's in the middle where it wouldn't be seen. Then you would have an extra bar to hang more things.

Nice job! Though I'm afraid to say that this doesn't seem to qualify for the pocket contest ;[
frootloose (author)  Labot20016 years ago
yes you're right, it won't fit in the pocket ;) i'm new to this site and i didn't understood what the contest was actually...
the materials for this hack would fit in a pocket... welcome frootloose, do some more, yay!
