Horse Shoes Towel Rack

How to make a towel rack using horse shoes and wood!

Using 4 old horse shoes and a 6 feet of wood a foot wide

I made this towel holder for my mom because, ya she likes horses. This was a fairly easy project to make. I used wood to make the back frame and shelves.  The width are both the same and the shelve comes about 8 inches. I used nails to attach the horse shoes to the frame. Before attaching I spray painted the the horses and added a clear coat. Also I stained the wood but you can buy wood that looks that and remember for the most part the towels will be covering it up.

Step 3: Attaching Horse Shoes

Once you have your horses painted or unpainted to attach them i used nails. Make sure the nail heads colors match the horse shoes you can paint them too. I would recommend pre drilling a hole before nails so you don’t split the wood. ” not saying I did”. This can be done either before attaching shelves or after.
