It is amazing how the little things in life can bring such joy. For example, these curtain tie backs repurposed into towel hooks are making me very happy! It was a few months ago when I first shared them on My Repurposed Life, and I LOVE them!
Why, you ask? Because my kids can actually hang up their towels...instead of throwing them on the floor, and that is something to be very excited about! Trust me.
Old fence wood framed mirror, it got broken when "someone" knocked it off the wall. The wood broke in a few places so I have since been re-repurposing it! Oh, I better sand off that word, not sure why it is there...
I cut them out of contact paper on my Cricut and stenciled them on in white.
I attached the hooks, or curtain tie backs, on the back of the board with screws. I made sure to pre drill first so the wood would not split. I also added eye hooks and picture hanging wire on the back top of the board. I prefer D-rings but I only had one, and didn't want to go to the store.
And that was it! I took a scrap of 400 grit sand paper (because it was what I found real quick) and sanded the stencil and the "new hooks" for a light distressing.
Perfect, rustic, and fun!
Now isn't this much better!? Not only is it functional, but cute too! Just. how. I like it.
The perfect size for my kids, and super easy for them to take off and PUT ON the towels. Yippee!
So what do you think? Want to run out and repurpose some old curtain tie backs? I see them all the time at thrift stores, and in my opinion you can never, EVER have enough hooks!
