A DIY Towel Bar for Less Than $10

A DIY Towel Bar for Less Than $10

After accumulating ideas for hundreds of do-it-yourself projects over the years, Remodelista editor Alexa has learned one important thing; the best DIY projects are simple, inexpensive, and can be knocked out in a few hours. She recently spotted this towel bar project at On My Honor, a blog by three sisters from the Pacific Northwest, who adapted an idea seen in Martha Stewart Living for the towel bars in their bathroom. Here’s how to make your own.

Above: Install a few eye bolts into the wall. Next, thread through some natural sisal or jute rope.

Above: Fix the ends with a sturdy knot and adjust the rope’s slack as desired.

Above: Hang your towel and—you’re finished.

I never heard of it before this post, but will look for it. I also flagged the spammer.

Never had a cat, but never thought they'd have the slightest interest in fruits or veggies.

Sounds good and healthy. I will try it. TY.
