If ever I had a TGIF moment, it would be now. Friday, you are welcome here. It’s been a heck of a week with sickies, long nights, and mountains of laundry (equal amounts of coffee). You know, just the usual. I’m on the countdown though because we are prepping for a trip to the beach and I seriously can’t wait. Today, it’s DIY Friday and I wanted to share a project that almost didn’t make it to the blog. We do a lot of little things (and some big things) around the house that never feel worthy of posting for whatever reason. I’ve gotten some questions about the towel hook in our master bathroom so for this week’s DIY Friday, it’s this DIY towel hook’s day to shine.
How to make DIY Towel Hooks
- Wooden yard sticks (you can grab them near the paint counter at The Home Depot)
- Wood glue
To start, we cut the yard sticks down to about six each pieces.
Next we dry brushed them with white paint. After letting them dry, we sanded them until smooth. We used wood glue to piece them together (sorry, I don’t have a photo of this step) by gluing all of the front horizontal slats to one vertical six inch piece of wood on the back.
So your wood base looks like this – and the next step is to add the hooks.
We used these simple oil rubbed bronze hooks from Target. One thing to note here. We didn’t use these screws to attach the hook to the wood base. We used much shorter screws that we had on hand and then used these screws to attach the towel hook to the wall.
These are a really functional and inexpensive addition to our master bath and they get used every single day.
Very soon I predict these hooks will have colorful swimsuits hanging from them because summer break starts tomorrow! Pool days, water balloons, and playing on our new water slide are all on the agenda this summer. We can’t wait!
