The good thing about having an old cabin that needs a ton of work, is that you can try some things you usually wouldn’t in a newer home. Hand crafted items fit a little better in an older cabin. A while back, we made the Vintage Ski’s turned towel rack for our condo in the city. It is adorable. This time around, I wanted to make towel racks for the cabin using the same pipe.
The existing towel racks drove me crazy. They wouldn’t tighten all the way so about 1/2 the time, they would fall off the wall when we hung towels. A metal bar hitting the tile floor doesn’t exactly make for a peaceful shower experience. I had enough so went to Home Depot and purchased wood, paint and pipe supplies.
This was a pretty quick and easy project. My husband made a couple cuts to the wood, I sanded the edges so I wouldn’t get slivers, painted the boards white, assembled the pipe pieces, and hung them up. While I wouldn’t put these in our city condo, they look adorable in the cabin. Don’t you think?
