This attractive and easily accessible pine shelf unit is a quick and easy way to fulfill storage needs in the bathroom.

The pine support bar is 45" high and supports three 15" shelves. Notches cut in every piece enable the shelves to be easily inserted into the support bar, making the unit simple to assemble. Since they’re made of wood, the shelves can be stained, varnished or painted to suit any decor. This towel rack project can be completed in a few hours by novice DIYers.
