Our bathroom has this really lovely towel holder and well it’s really not working for us. Why? Because it only holds 1 towel plus a hand towel. And we are not really loving the look of the towel rod. So we decided to change the rod to hooks and update the look.
First, I removed the old towel holder and of course only to find a dirty wall.
I then cut a 1″ x 4″ board to the same size as the old towel holder but you could change the size if you wanted. I primed and painted the board and drilled holes where the board will attach to the wall. Then I attached the board to the wall.
I did not want the screws showing for the finished look. So I made sure I drilled a slightly bigger hole so the screw could be covered with spackling paste. I applied two coats to get a smooth finished.
Then I lightly sanded the area and caulked around the board to give it a finished look. After I touched up the board and wall with paint.
The hooks that I purchased (from Hobby Lobby) did not come with screw. So I spray painted the screws that way they would match the hooks.
And now my bathroom has some updated bathroom hooks for cheap!
Let me remind you what it looked like before…
This project was a cheap update.
1″ x 4″ Board – FREE (had on hand from our window trim)
Hook – $7.50 (50% off at Hobby Lobby)
Screws – $.40 ($4 for a box of 100 but only used 10)
Spray Paint – FREE (had on hand)
Spackling Paste – FREE
Paint/Primer – FREE
TOTAL COST – LESS than $8.00
So what do you think? I think it makes the bathroom look better and it gives us more towel hooks… Does anyone else needing to update their towel holder? Or bathroom for that matter?
