Reclaimed Wood-turned-DIY-towel-holder-at blissfullyeverafter.netThe master bathroom is in it’s very final stages. We primed all of the cabinet doors and after a couple coats of paint they will be ready to hang with the new oil rubbed bronze hardware and then we can finally show you the final reveal. In the mean time, I thought I would share this quick and easy project we put together for a reclaimed wood turned DIY towel holder.DIY-Towel-Holder


I used a leftover piece of wood from previous pallet wood projects and cut it to the desired size. No sanding was really needed since I wanted the piece to look old and worn.  Then using a DIY aged wood treatment {more on this coming soon}, I applied 3 coats to the wood and it gave it an aged barnwood look that we love.




I picked up two farmhouse looking hooks from Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off.




Before attaching the hooks to the reclaimed wood, the Hubbs drilled holes and secured the wood to the wall in order to make sure it was sturdy enough to withstand the constant wear from hanging up towels. We initially thought to use D-rings or saw tooth hooks but quickly realized screwing the board to the wall would hold up much better.


After the wood was secured to the wall, the Hubbs attached the hooks. He is so much better at measuring than me, so he is always the only to hang things, which includes attaching hooks.





We just love the look this old piece of pallet wood brings to our master bath. It’s fun to give old things new life that otherwise would have been thrown away. We also love that this project costs under $10 since the wood was free, the DIY aged wood treatment was free to make, and the hooks were on sale for $3.50 each.


It’s nice to have his and her hooks! We used to have to hang both of our towels from the same hook or one of them on the shower door bar and I never liked the way that looked. It always seemed to look messy to me. Now, the crisp white linens pop against the new wall color and look inviting to use after a relaxing shower.
