Pallet Towel Rack
I've been really blessed to come from a family that celebrates creativity. If you've ever visited my family home, you'd be sure to find a variety of projects in progress, and new ideas blooming everywhere you turn. With this upbringing, it's not really a surprise that I'm constantly trying to find new ways to express myself. My darling often gets caught rolling his eyes as I try to explain to him why I want to attempt to make a quilt, collect mason jars to fill with tea and other goodies, or to sew some bunting with vintage doilies. Luckily for me, a couple of months ago when I told him that he should keep an eye out for a nice old discarded pallet so I can make a towel rack, he found a gorgeous one that perfectly suited what I had in mind.
In our travels, we collected hooks, a pretty drawer pull for my shower cap and the right coloured screws; then found a sunny afternoon to put it all together. Andrew is doing all the measuring, cutting, drilling and hanging in the pictures, but I swear I did do more than just take photos! I'm really happy with the end result, so now all I have to do is decide what we can make out of the rest of the pallet.
