The fun thing about making your own bathroom towel hook rack is that you can customize it to whatever color and shape you want. I like the rustic farmhouse look, so I went with stained wood and gray paint.
Happy Monday! I’m taking part in a new monthly series with some of my favorite bloggers where we share ideas on how to create a home you love without breaking the bank. Each month will have a different theme, starting with bathrooms this time around. I’m so excited to be part of this great group and I know you’re going to love everything that we share with you!
For my first #HomeDiyForLess, I’m sharing this simple and fun Towel Hook Rack with you. This is not only a great project for your own home but would make a cute housewarming gift, too! The same method can also be used to create cute wood signs to add to your home decor.
For Your Towel Rack You Will Need:
- Vinyl Cut Out (I created the word “Towels” using my Silhouette)
- Mod Podge
- Robe Hooks
Transfer to transfer paper.
Position vinyl on previously stained or painted piece of wood (make sure that stain has dried for at least 48 hours prior – paint needs at least 24 hours). Burnish the vinyl with a hard object or just rub really well with the side of your head to make sure it adheres.
Carefully peel back the transfer paper, leaving the vinyl adhered to the wood. If you don’t want to paint over it, then you’re done with the vinyl and can skip to step 8. Otherwise go to step 5.
Seal the edges of the vinyl with Mod Podge. This step helps give sharp edges when you later remove the vinyl.
Paint over the entire piece of wood. You can use a roller for a smooth coat or a paintbrush for a more rustic look. The paint color I’m using is a leftover sample pot of Benjamin Moore’s Gray Owl.
Let the paint dry for about 15 minutes but don’t let it fully cure. Carefully peel back the vinyl. You may need to use a pin or a weeding tool.
Screw on as many robe hooks as you need. I grabbed these ones from the hardware section at Target.
Then all you have to do is attach a sawtooth hanger or another hanging mechanism to the back and you’re done!
