Use a PVC five-way fitting to make a free standing towel rack. Insert a piece of PVC through the hole on the top of the luminaire to serve as the center or base of the stand. Install other parts of the tube through the centerpiece to make the towel bars. Use the other four holes in the appropriate to install PVC pipe pieces that are long enough to balance the drying position so that it will stand up.
To make a simple free standing towel rack to install on a bathroom door, use PVC slip-on flanges, which come in several different sizes. Flanges have holes in them that make it possible to connect them to a door or wall. Glue PVC elbows to the flanges and place a PVC tube between the two elbows forming a towel hanger.

Another type of door or wall mounting can be accomplished by using PVC three-way strokes on the end of slip-on flanges. Glue a piece of PVC pipe between two of the holes on three-way mounting. Place a second free standing towel rack next to the first one using two 4-inch pieces of PVC tube with elbows at each end and a PVC tube in the center of the same length as the first part and glue it into the other two holes on three-way assembly.
