DIY Kitchen Towel Hanger

By Diane, In My Own Style

Who doesn't want a clean and organised kitchen? One of the ways to keep it sparkly and spotless is with a kitchen towel. Not only for wiping oil spills and stubborn greases, it's also used for drying hands or dishes.

So make sure you have a hanger for your kitchen towels—and while at it, why not make it stylish, too? Diane, from In My Own Style, shares this DIY kitchen towel hanger idea, using towel hooks and Picture Hanging Strips from Command™. It's a fun way to add a pop of colour to your kitchen and show off your style.

Materials needed:


  • Place for your kitchen towel organiser

    Select a space in your kitchen for a decorative dishtowel rack, such as on the kitchen island or the side of counter.

    Use wood glue to attach decorative moulding pieces to a pine board, and let dry. Be sure to leave enough space in between each piece to adhere a Command™ Quartz Terrace Hook.

  • Painted board as a kitchen hand towel rack

    Paint the board with two coats of chalk paint. Let the first coat dry thoroughly before applying the second coat.

    When the board is completely dry, rub sandpaper over all the edges of the board and moulding pieces to create a distressed look.

  • Closeup of the distressed painted board for the kitchen towel holder

    Apply a coat of clear wax, and rub it into the surface of the painted board. Let dry for about 15 minutes, then buff with a soft cloth. Use a small paintbrush to remove wax from the detailed parts in the decorative accent moulding pieces. Note: Do not apply wax where hooks will be placed as this can affect adhesion.

    Repeat the process with the dark wax to give the board an aged, worn look—also known as “patina.”

    NOTE: Do not apply wax where hooks will be placed as this can affect adhesion.

  • Command™ Quartz Terrace Hooks

    Attach the Command™ Quartz Terrace Hooks or Command™ Medium Designer Hooks to the front of the board. First clean the area in between the decorative accent moulding pieces with isopropyl rubbing alcohol, wipe gently and let dry.

  • Back of the Command™ Quartz Terrace Hooks with adhesive strips

    Then remove the red liner from the adhesive strip and press to the Command™ Quartz Terrace Hook or Command™ Medium Designer Hook firmly. Remove the black liner from the adhesive strip and press the hook to the board for 30 seconds. For maximum holding strength, slide the hook up and off the board and press the base to the board firmly for 30 seconds.

    Repeat for the additional hooks. Slide the hooks back on their bases and wait one hour before hanging dish towels.

  • Attaching picture hanging strips to the back of the board

    Adhere two sets of Command™ Picture Hanging Strips to the back of the board to hang the piece to the wall or cabinet. To make a set, place two strips together until you hear them snap. Remove one green liner from the Command™ Picture Hanging Strips and attach to the back of the board. Remove the other green liner and press the board into place on the wall or cabinet for 30 seconds.

    NOTE: Two medium sets of Picture Hanging Strips can hold up to 2.5kgs. Two large sets can hold up to 3.5kg. Ensure that the weight of your board and the items hanging on it do not exceed the maximum weight for your strips.
