Headboard turned towel rack

s, towelAre you a towel bar or hook kind of person? In my household, hooks are much more efficient. No need to train your kiddos to hang the towel just so. As long as the towel grabs the hook, we're good to go!

So how creative can one get with a simple towel hanging solution?

This is the way the towels were hung in my home until lately. While the hooks were indeed plentiful and the numbers created abit of whimsey, I desired more of a feature for this wall.

Nothing an old headboard can't fix! The long legs were cut, then the piece was primed and painted with a brush. A more vintage feel was desired and a brush creates strokes no roller nor sprayer can achieve! A light glaze was applied after painting (not shown here) to enhance the brush strokes.

Next up... some house numbers in random styles and colours. No matchy matchy here!

Some larger brass house numbers were lightly sprayed with a flat black, allowing abit of rust on the edges to peek through for more warmth and character.

The result is a much more substantial and fun way to hang all the family towels in place!

From a whispery kind of cute...

... to a totally unique classic piece to enjoy!
