Quick and Easy Towel Bar


This project was such a breeze and made such a difference in the towel organization (and presentation) for our bathroom! Before we crammed our towels on the tiniest metal bar. I mean were the builders of this house serious? They expect people to use that bar for their towels? How?! It barely holds one towel? And don't get me started on the aesthetics of the beautifully crafted bland metal! In any case, it was time for it to retire.

The new towel bar was actually made out of scrap pieces. We had some scrap wood from other projects sitting in the garage...I lucked out and didn't have to cut the wood at all because it was already the perfect size for me. After making my selection, I then applied some leftover paint and screwed in the hardware. Done! It was that easy and is so much more functional! Now my husband has no excuse to throw the towels on the floor because there isn't room on the towel bar...problem solved! :)
