When the hard, labor-intensive projects are completed, it’s easy to pat yourself on the back for a job well done and walk away from a newly renovated bathroom, relishing the fact that you’re 95% done and you deserve a break. While that is definitely true – you did a wonderful job, the room is looking amazing, and you DO deserve a break – it’s slightly premature. There are a few things you need to consider, some finishing touches, that will bring the room’s completion to 100% and also make it look every bit as amazing as it deserves to look.
For a very easy DIY hand towel holder, acquire some heavy-duty (6-gauge, for example) brass wire. I had a spare 12” piece, which I bent into an isosceles triangular shape large enough to hold a folded hand towel. (Note: Learn tips for this method in this article for DIYing a toilet paper dispenser.)
To hang the hand towel holder, you can simply screw a brass screw hook into a stud in the wall. However, if your wall doesn’t have a stud where you want to hang the hand towel holder, you’ll need to install a drywall anchor that fits your screw hook.
You can opt for a towel rod if you like and hang it near the tub/shower. Or you can find some towel or coat hooks that speak to you and match the vibe of your bathroom and install those. These black and white striped Anthropologie hooks are perfect for the vintage-modern vibe I’m going for in this bathroom makeover.
