DIY Towel Rack {{From Pallets}}

“Cheers to the freakin’ weekend…”

Whew, it’s the end of the week! {Sigh. of. relief.} My little fam and I went to a cookout this evening and are going to another tomorrow! {You can never have enough cookout food right?!} It should be an exciting weekend full of lots of things to do but for now I’m soaking up the silence. Lounging in the PJ’s, snuggled up to a crochet blanket, sippin’ some good ol’ hot chocolate {just burnt the taste buds -_-} and watching HGTV while everyone else in the house is snooooozing it up.

Well, I’ve been following along with one of my fav bloggers {Dacia @ Lemondroplife.com} while she is fixing up her guest bathroom and it’s motivated me to give a little life to OUR bathroom as well! I decided to go to Pinterest {best place for a little inspiration no doubt} and I found tons of nifty things you can do with wood pallets. We have 3 of them sitting in our back yard right now that we got for FREE {I love the sound of that word ;-)} so of course I’m dying to use them for projects. Hubs suggested that we create a magazine/towel rack to spice up our bathroom and I was all in! He used the saw and I stained the wood and VOILA …we had the perfect addition to the start of our mini bathroom makeover.

Here’s the tutorial…

1.}} Lay your wood pallet upside down.

2.}} With your saw cut directly next to the center wood beam of the pallet.

{{Excuse the fact that were using a hand saw. *rolls eyes* We forgot our electric one at my in-laws house.}}

3.}} Continue to saw straight down, following the center beam.

4.}} Using the wood that is still left over from the OTHER HALF of the pallet, take the nails off of the front beam.

5.}} Take the beam you just took off the front and nail it to the bottom of your “towel rack”.

6.}} Now to the good part… sand down all of the rough areas.

7.}} Stain the wood.

{{I used the stain color “English Chestnut” for mine.}}

8.}} Add on your knobs/hooks.

{{I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby for 50% off! -Holla-}

9.}} Hang it up, add a few of your magazines aaaaaand…you. are. done!

What do you think?!?!

I <3 the dark wood stain!

Well, onto project #2 for the bathroom… the cabinet makeover!! {Wish me luck! I’ll need it ;-)}

Have a GREAT weekend!
