In our girl’s bathroom there were originally four towel hooks on the wall. Evidently the spacing did not allow each one to be installed in a wall stud because over time, one came off the wall. The weight of wet heavy beach towels probably did not help matters. To find a solution to the problem we went to the thrift store to look for something “sign-like” to use as a backer for the hooks. We found an inexpensive twin bed and thought the foot board looked like a candidate for our project.
The original color was a peachy-white, washed southwestern type of look. I sanded and painted it flat black. Then I thought it should look old and added some crackle medium in a few spots. Next I painted it the same white as our woodwork in the bathroom. I was going to sand it to reveal some of the black paint but decided to live with it awhile first. One of the four hooks was losing the finish so I decided to install the remaining three hooks. My husband then installed it on the wall making sure it was secure to the wall studs.
I think it needs a sign painted on it but I can’t decide what it should be. Perhaps something in french or a barbershop reference. Maybe just one word such as Towels or Soap. What do you think?
