DIY Towel Rack Solutions for Your Houston Pool

As a Houston pool owner, you have no doubt experienced the soggy towel phenomenon. There never seems to be a good place to put swimmers’ towels and they often wind up dumped on patio furniture or littered in messy heaps on the pool deck. Create a clean and orderly place to corral towels as well as a place for wet towels to dry with one of these ingenious do-it-yourself towel racks from around the web!

Wooden Wonder

First is this simple and beautiful option from My House and Home. We love how the copper accents lend such a touch of class! With a few basic tools, this can be built in about an hour. Let each family member claim a branch by painting the end cap in their favorite color!

Take a look at how Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy used a free architectural cast-off to create this simple, but lovely hook rack! With this lovely piece, you no longer need worry about sitting on a chair cushion soaked by damp towels. (Sorry, we can’t do anything about the dripping swimmer who sat there before you!)

For an added dose of style, copy that rustic-fabulous metal tub for storing fresh guest towels!

Similarly, the imaginative folks at Our Vintage Home Love put together this quirky piece using old outdoor faucet knobs collected at junk shops and flea markets. With a little creativity, just about anything can be turned into an original, functional work of art. Consider mounting these cool knobs at alternate heights directly on a fence or deck railing for a fun decorative statement!

PVC Towel Rack

Popping Piping

Finally, this amazing multi-tasker is perhaps the most useful of all! Made of lightweight yet durable PVC, this easy to make towel rack could be configured to hold as many towels as you like with room left over for a wet swimsuit or two! Also, the versatile brown color shown here would complement just about any outdoor furniture.
