What’s more romantic than a hot tub full of bubbles followed by some soft, fluffy towels or bathrobes? Well, how about grabbing those soft, warm fluffy towels off of a His & Hers towel hook set? Mr Napping got this little baby for Christmas – okay, busted. Basically, I wanted something cute to replace our single towel bar in the Master bathroom. I’m a two-toweler and we just didn’t have enough towel hooks to meet our bathroom needs. It was super easy and looks great in our natural-themed bathroom (well, it will be natural-themed… if I ever get it done………………..) This would be really cute scaled down and made into a key hook… just an idea. If you run with it, I want to see photos!
– Board(s) – I used a scrap piece of 1″x12″ oak that was about 6″ long.
– “His” vinyl and “Hers” vinyl
– 2 Hooks with screws
– Stain or paint/sealer (optional)
– Drill with drill bits
– Screwdriver or screwdriver bits for the drill
*In my rush to finish this for Christmas, I failed to take process photos. I’m sorry. If you have questions, let me know and I’ll do my best to clear things up. Hopefully, it’s pretty simple.
– Because I used a piece of oak scrap, I didn’t need to stain or paint my board. It was already finished. If you used something else and you want to stain or paint the board, do so now. Let it dry thoroughly.
– Apply the vinyl “His” and “Hers” decals. Play around with placement to find what layout you like the best. If you opt to use two boards, do one on each board, obviously. Make sure there will be adequate room for the towel hooks and the towels to hang and dry. I didn’t want to cover up any of my vinyl with the towels so I went with an off-set layout for my hooks.
– Decide on the layout of you hooks as well, but don’t attach them yet. When you find a layout you like, stick down the vinyl. If you want to apply a sealer, do so now. Let it dry completely.
– Lay down your hooks again and mark the holes for the screws. Drill small holes where you marked.
– Sink your screws and tighten down the hooks.
You will need a way to attach the board(s) to your wall. I opted to just attach the boards to the walls with screws. I located studs in the walls and then sunk two screws into each board to secure them. You could also put a sawtooth picture hanger or a wire hanger on the back and then put them on the wall with nails or cute little cup hooks or something. If you personalize this project, I’d love to see how. Towel hooks for your kids would be super cute!
