In full scale, towel racks can be anywhere from 14 inches to 30 inches in length. Many bathrooms would have one or two different sizes. A typical towel rack would be 18 inches.
1. For each towel rack you will need one length of wire and two rivets.
2. Add 1/2 inch to the length of the towel rack that you want, and cut the wire to that length.
3. Bend each end to a right angle 1/4 inch from the end, forming a short, wide "U".
4. Place the rivets (sleeve side on first) on the bent ends of the wire.
5. Glue in place so that the end of the wire is flush with the flat circular end of the rivet.
6. The flat circular end of the rivet will mount on the wall of your bathroom.
