Hanging It Up

For the last couple months, I've been struggling with this scene in my bathroom:

The towel bar in our master bath isn't very big, and when Cory and I both hang our bath sheets on it after a shower, there really isn't enough room, and they overlap.  This unfortunately means that most of the time, they don't dry completely, and there is nothing worse than using a still damp towel.  Yuck!

Luckily, I had an idea and the perfect replacements sitting in my home decor closet.

So, I took out my screw driver and got out the smallest bit to take out the `set` screws on the towel bar.

That left me with these brackets.
Secret:  I haven`t yet remove, patch and fill these.  I`ve got a bunch of stuff to patch and fill around the house, so I`ll do everything at once.

I then got out my tools.  A drill and an incredibly curious and helpful kitten.

Place the hooks where I want them, mark the holes with a pencil.
*Look at how beautiful these hooks are!!*

So far, they are working out fabulously.  They also look quite amazing if I do say so myself.  Plus, the black looks great with the shower curtain!

Cost for this project:

But if you want to get technical:
Hooks - $1.00 each (purchased from Dollarama  probably six years ago!!)

I LOVE pretty hooks in a bathroom. I rarely use a towel bar. Yours look amazing...cannot believe you scored them for a dollar.
