Lastly, we needed to fix the towel hanging situation. This one was inspired by Pinterest.
When you rent, as many of you may know, you often have the cheapest possible fixtures. Our towel rack was one such fixture.
|I lost count how many times this has fallen down off the wall.|
That's when I saw an alternative idea...
I found this pre-made board at Hobby Lobby
and my husband stained it for me.
Then, it was time for new towels.
Thanks to a wonderful sale at Kohls and some timely Kohls cash that was about to expire, we were able to get some nice new towels at
|Yes, this is the full extent of my sewing abilities!|
Now, the boys will be able to hang their towels on a hook instead of "trying" to fold them and hang them nicely. Much easier and saves a lot of space.
Of course, no nest is complete without birds.
The real question was..
do we go with a straight flock of birds?
Or more of a zig zag pattern?
These are serious questions, people!
Since our flock is definitely NOT a uniform bunch, we went with the zig zag!
My dear hubby hung it for us.
He even made sure we had the strongest mounts possible anticipating some
"stress" in its future.
He drilled the mounting holes and counter sunk the heads of the screws so that the outside bird hooks would cover them and present a bit neater.
Here is the finished product:
And a pleased middle child!
Now, none of this is rocket science, but it has already, with only three boys, helped keep things a bit more sane (and cleaner too!)
