Drill Hole for Towel Rod
Along the bottom of the shelf, a towel rod made from precut 1-inch black iron pipe and 1-inch black iron pipe caps will be installed. In order to fit the pipe to the wood, drill holes approximately 2 inches up from the bottom of each of the two vertical supports. Tip: When having iron pipe precut at a home improvement store, make sure the overall length of the pipe is equal to the overall width of the shelf unit to ensure the pipe caps fit along the outside edge of the vertical supports. If cut too small, the caps won't have enough thread to screw into.
Attach Towel Rod
Place precut black iron pipe through drilled holes. Next, loosely fit the black iron pipe caps on each end of the pipe with fingers (Image 1). Use wrench to securely fit pipe caps in place (Image 2).
Since the shelf unit is made for use in a wet space, it's important to seal its wood surfaces. To do this, add an even coat of spray sealant by holding the can approximately 8 inches from the surface of the wood, moving back and forth in a slow, controlled manner. Once sealant is dry, hang shelf unit on wall either with 3-inch wood screws using drill or with picture hangers fastened to the back.
