DIY: An Instant Towel Bar for Under $10
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
So I have this notebook where I keep a list of DIY ideas for future execution. The other day, I realized that more than half of them are incredibly involved; some require renting power tools, using potentially harmful chemicals, or at least three weekends worth of work. I have to remind myself that I can only do so much. I've learned that the best DIY projects are simple, inexpensive, and can be knocked out in a few hours. We recently spotted this project at On My Honor , a blog by three sisters from the Pacific Northwest, who adapted an idea seen in Martha Stewart Living for the towel bars in their bathroom. Above: Install a few eye bolts like the Zinc-Plated Eye Bolt for $.70 to $2.67, depending on size, from Home Depot. Next, thread through some natural rope like Everbilt's Natural Sisal Rope for $5.58 or Natural Jute Rope for $2.33, also from Home Depot. Above: Fix the ends with a sturdy knot and adjust the rope's slack as desired. Above: Hang your towel and—you're finished. Looking for more DIY projects for the bath?
