The three women behind the blog  The Merrythought  have been coming up with some great DIY projects of late. We especially like Catilin McGrath's simple, elegant DIY towel holder made for her own rental bathroom. I plan to make one for my kids' bath and another for our mudroom to use as a scarf hanger.  Photography by Caitlin McGrath via The Merrythought .   Above: Satisfyingly elemental, the towel holder is made from a black leather strap, a metal ring (that Caitlin opted to paint copper and finish with a waterproof clear coat), and a nail (choose a color that works well with your ring).  Above: Cut a leather strap six to eight inches long, fold it in half, and place the metal ring in the crease. Add glue to the inside of the strap and hold together. Finally, use a nail or screw to install the towel holder to the wall.  Above: The holder is sized perfectly for a hand towel.  Take a look at our post on the  DIY Magazine Rack  for a similar leather-strap project.   Above: For step-by-step instructions, go to Caitlin's DIY Hand Towel Ring , and see  Caitlin's Rental Bathroom Makeover for ideas to steal.  Check out the  Remodelista Photo Gallery for more bathroom inspiration.
