How do you get a DIY towel holder for the bathroom out of an old porch baluster? By accident of course.
My vintage porch baluster finally had a purpose. I was going to turn it into a rustic bathroom towel rack.
So easy to do, too. The paint job was left alone (I mean...how can you mess with chippy paint perfection?).
As for the hooks, I just picked up a couple at the store (*similar here) and attached them to the baluster.
I did drill small holes in the wood before I added the screws so the wood wouldn't split.
A couple of wood screws were used to attach it to the wall and it was done.
Much better than an old 2x4 and it adds a little character to the room. It turned into the perfect towel holder.
