This is what's making me happy today. A shabby old seat found on the side of the road and a towel rack made with a piece of old architrave found in a skip outside a building site. It doesn't take much to make me happy!
With some turkish towels in my favourite colours, a hat, some shells, a cushion, a lantern we now have a welcoming back door entry to our coastal abode. A place to hang the towels & keep a beach basket packed and ready go.
I primed and painted the architrave, then screwed on some hooks from the hardware shop. I would have liked some of the vintage kind, but these look a bit vintage after painting the chrome with primer and a light coat of paint so they look a bit weathered.
i used some velcro with double sided tape found at the hardware to stick this to the wall. Quick & simple and saves drilling into the wall.
Have a great week!
Great little bench seat and good job on the towel rack. Velcro is a fab idea to hang the rack! xReplyDelete
