We’ve once told you that even gray bathrooms to have their much deserved livening-up. Now, here’s another idea we have for you to upgrade your bath area. Making a unique towel rack with a fallen tree branch. It’s easy, doesn’t cost much, and will be a very personal touch to your bathroom. You never know, after this, you might want to branch out into other things like completely re-decorating your bathroom.
1. Choose the straightest part of the branch, and cut to a length of about 10 inches.
2. Using sandpaper, gently sand any rough or fraying parts of the branch, including both ends, until smooth.
3. Consider the length of the branch, and choose the wall or door where you want your rack and drill the hooks or hinges in place. You can also simply secure them with small nails.
4. Bond the branch on the hinges using the adhesive or any transparent bonding glue.
