With my design idea and my husband’s handyman skills, we created a nautical towel hook for the boys bathroom. Back when we were renovating the laundry area, we saved all of the old wood. I found a piece of backing that I knew would be perfect for some type of hook. About a year later, we put the plan into action!
The first step was to clean up the piece of wood and let it dry. My husband then covered it in one coat of polyurethane. I had purchased some galvanized steel cleats from West Marine that were the right size for holding a bath towel. I chose four, since I thought the spacing would look best and allow each boy to hang two towels/robes at a time.
After the polyurethane dried, my husband arranged the cleats and then drilled them into the wood. The wood piece already had some pre-drilled holes in the back. We used drywall anchors and drilled directly into the wall to secure the section of wood. It works perfectly, and I love that it cost about $8 to make! It was exactly what I wanted–a nautical and rustic feel.
