Easy To Make Towel Hooks

After a two month blogging break I am so excited to finally be back!!!!

Although I must admit, I feel like a newbie all over again! You should have seen me trying to edit my photos on PicMonkey. You'd think I'd remember the flow of things...but nope.

I also want to let you guys know that I will only be posting once (maybe twice) a week until I get a new laptop. Mine is incredibly slow and I'm sure it takes me twice as long to blog than it should.

With that said....let's roll.

During the summer I saw this amazingly easy project over at Landee See Landee Do, and so it happened that Selene saw and Selene did.


How could I pass this fabulous alternative to the plain ol' towel bar???

Well, I didn't.


I love how these towel hooks look with my DIY'd Floor to Ceiling Shower Curtain too!



These DIY towel hooks are so easy and fun to make!

I purchased a couple wooden plaques from Hobby Lobby, painted them white and added gray stripes with a sample of Martha Stewart's Nimbus Cloud.

Then I drilled these fabulous black hooks (also found in Hobby Lobby), added four Command strips to the backside, pressed them to the wall and threw the towels on!

I didn't think the Command strips would hold up the weight of the towels (especially when wet) but so far so good! It's been a few months and I haven't had any issues.


I even made a smaller version and hung it by the sink:



You can check out the tutorial here, if you'd like!

My favorite part is that I don't have to fold the towels and make sure they're even anymore. 

Now I just throw the towel back on the hook and forget it!

Lazy?

Maybe a little.

As always, question and comments are appreciated :)

Redoing my bathroom and this is one thing I am changing, already have two new hooks!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Vel Criste said...

What cute project Selene! Thanks for sharing! And welcome back!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thank you, Vel! You are too sweet :)

Lindsey Domer said...

Loving the slightly beachy look! Perfect for all those wet towels and dirty clothes in the bathroom!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks, Lindsey! Now that you mention it, I do find myself throwing my daughter's clothes on them!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Yay, you're back!!!! I've missed your posts! :) I love this idea for towel racks. I love the grey color and I've found that those command hooks usually hold way more than I think they will, so yours should be fine. Good to see you blogging again! :)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Lisa, you are too sweet! Thanks for the nice warm welcome!

Kim StuffedSuitcase said...

Love this idea and I really need to do it! Those towel bars are not as cute. Welcome back to blogging! :)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thank you Kim! I agree, these hooks are way cuter!
Thanks for stopping by ;)

Krista thehappyhousie said...

These are so cute Selene - I love the character that mounting them on the board adds as opposed to just the wall. And what pretty hooks!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks Krista! I'm really enjoying looking at them when I go in the bathroom! Gotta love Hobby Lobby! Thanks for stopping by;)

Vett Vandiver said...

easy and awesome DIY - thanks for sharing!!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Well, thank you Vett! And thanks for visiting, you're welcome over anytime!

Abby said...

Love how you put yours on wood, it really adds a nice look to them. I actually have those exact hooks on the back of my bathroom door to hold towels. Love them! Thanks so much for stopping by chapter37 and for your kind comment!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks so much, Abby! Those hooks are so pretty, aren't they?
And it was my pleasure visiting your lovely blog! Thanks for stopping by:)

Mindi Carwin said...

They look fabulous!!! I am planning on doing this in my bathroom, I am hoping my kids will be able to hang a towel on a hook, because they sure can't do it on a towel bar! Love it! If you have a minute I would love it if you came and linked up at our wowza weekend link party! http://mylove2create.blogspot.com/2013/11/wowza-weekend-link-party-30.html

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks, Mindi! I just linked up :)

Rhonda said...

Love this idea! I am going to pin it. Thanks for adding the links to the products on Amazon. This gave me an idea of the cost for the project. Rhonda (http://feetgroundedontheeath.blogspot.com)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Glad you like it Rhonda! And thanks for pinning!

Miranda @ Someday Crafts said...

Gorgeous hooks! I love the stripes! I so wish we could put up something like this in our apartment. The towel bars weren't put up very well, so they're always falling down. We'll be featuring your hooks over at Someday Crafts tomorrow :)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks so much, Miranda! That's so sweet of you!
These hooks are actually very renter friendly since they're held up with Command strips ;)

Jocelyn said...

I love these gorgeous towel hooks!! They would make any bathroom look better!! :)

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thanks, Jocelyn! Yes..they sure do add some pizzazz, don't they? Thanks for visiting :))

Jenny Lynn said...

Great Idea! I need a few of these hanging up in my kids bathroom.

Britni Vigil said...

What a way to come back, love this idea! Thanks for sharing on the weekend re-Treat link party!

Britni @ Play. Party. Pin.

Thank you, Britini!! I knew I had to try the project when I saw it!!

Really love how your wall hooks look, all of them. The hooks look pretty snazzy on the plaques. Great job. Glad I clicked on your post, love idea, loved the prettying up of $store bin also. Happy Spring days
