I love this project! Probably because it mixes a little style with some good old-fashioned problem solving.
Here is my issue. I literally picked up seven towels off of my boys’ floor. What the heck?? How did that even happen? Please tell me that I am not the only mom who gets frustrated by the towel issue. Hmmmm, what to do? Well, my solution was to switch over from towel racks to hooks. I figured that it might be quick and easy enough to help the kids with a new habit….actually hanging up their towels after their shower. Supplies:
- 1″-2″ thick wooden stump slices (free….thank you tree! Or you can pick them up at Micheal’s for very little $)
- towel/coat hooks (I picked these up for about $4 each)
Start by screwing the hooks directly into the wooden stump slice.
For installation, I simply used some long multi-purpose screws. They felt really snug, but feel free to find a stud and/or use anchors for extra security.
Since I have three kiddos, I decided to do three hooks in a jagged design. You could easily do these in a straight line, or be more abstract with their placement. Regardless, they are adorable!
Yah!! I love how they turned out! Now, here’s to hoping that my kiddos will remember to hang those towels up after their showers. Fingers crossed!
