Today’s project is simple and fast but definitely a cute one!! Where do we always go no matter the day? Yep to the bathroom. Why not make this space as fabulously decorated as the rest of your home? Agreed. Let’s start with tackling the hand towel. I decided to create this towel rack from wood! I went out to the wood pile and found the perfect cut!

Now for the mounting, we found this hardware amongst our tool chest of treasures. I would take a quick trip to Home Depot and see all the hardware options.

Grab some picture hangers, one for each side. Tip and trick when working with small nails- grab some need nose pliers instead of hitting your thumb while hammering! Genius!

    I have placed a hand towel in the bathroom for years. I found a ring that goes with my deco and I put a fresh towel. After 3 or so days I take it down and a fresh one goes up. Saves on paper towels. Save me drying large bath towels when a small one will do. After all you are drying with clean hands. Good for the earth toooooooooooooooooooooo.
