Today I am sharing an easy project to add a little customization and style to any space for very little money… DIY Striped Towel Hooks!  
Obviously these don’t have to be specifically for towels but it is what I am using them for!  I shared my son’s bedroom makeover last week HERE and these are in his bathroom (which is attached to his room).  I thought now that his bedroom is all spiffy his bathroom ought to match!
So here’s what you need:
  • wood plaques (bought at any craft store for about $1.50 each)
  • hooks (I got mine at Hobby Lobby on sale for 50% off!  So about $3 each.)
  • craft paint
  • mod podge
  • sandpaper
  • masking tape

STEP ONE: Paint the plaques.   I painted mine all white, let them dry, and then painted the edge orange.  I then got out my 3/4″ masking tape and taped off 3/4″ stripes. I painted the exposed parts orange and removed the tape.

STEP TWO: Allowed the paint to dry entirely and then sanded the edges.  I then gave them all a good coat of Mod Podge for a nice seal/finish.
STEP THREE: Attach the hooks to the plaques.  Make sure you measure so they are all even with each other and level.  Also make sure to do pilot holes to avoid splitting your wood.

STEP FOUR:  Attach to wall.  Guess what I used that is working splendidly?  Command Strips!  I used three strips on each and they are amazingly strong!  I love that they were no mess and will leave no holes too.  I’m completely sold on these things now!   BUT, if you feel you need to screw these things to the wall or nail them in then who am I to stop you?
And that’s it for the towel hooks!  Love love love them!  I’m now a little jealous of my son because I still have a lame towel bar in my bathroom.  I might have to remedy that ASAP.
I also painted a frame orange and added white stripes using a paint pen to carry the orange over to his counter area.   And I created this fun printable to go in it!  I thought this was perfect for when he’s getting ready in the mornings.  I’ll be sharing it, along with a more “girl color palette” one next week so be sure to check back!
And here’s a final look at what the bathroom looks like overall.  I got that shower curtain about a year ago at Target, just FYI. 
Thanks for stopping by!

    I may totally take this idea to help with the towel situation in my boys’s jack-and-jill shared bathroom. I have already added another towel bar and it’s still not enough! And in my daughter’s bathroom too (because I stole her towel bar to give to the boys) she can have a cuter one. Thanks!

    I loved these striped towel hooks so much that I made some for my boyfriend and I. We don’t live together but he is over enough that when he showers, we get confused of whose towel is whose. Therefore, I did one pink and purple and the other two shades of blue! They’re perfect! Thanks for sharing the idea.
