I had been thinking for a long time about taking my bathroom towel rod down and putting up hooks. After all, with 5 kids, it was impossible to hang up every one's towels at one time! I was washing new towels every time that the kids bathed, because they never dried. I was in Goodwill one day, and I got this shelf with hooks on it for the half price ticket of $3.50! I was so excited and felt that I had hit the jackpot, except for the very ugly stenciling on it!Well, a fresh coat of white paint and it looked brand new!
I then decided to label the hooks so no one gets confused. I used the Creative Memories Creative Cuts to cut out numbers 1-5 out of brown-toned papers (to match my bathroom). Then, to the Mod Podge!!! You gotta love that stuff!
Yes, I know, I'm not quite sure how to decorate this thing. That shelf is so short, that I can't figure out what to put there, and yet not really care about what the kids do to it. Any ideas??? Please?
A closer look at those numbers. I think that when I get new towels, chocolate brown ones, I am going to sew a ribbon loop on each of them, so they don't slip off.
And while I am asking for help, I was wondering if any of you know what this is. It is ceramic and the two little boys are separate pieces. My Grandmother had it in her china cabinet when I was a child. She had nothing else like it really in that cabinet. I was fascinated with it, and when she passed away, it was given to me. I was just curious. I would never get rid of it, but was wondering where it might have come from.
