Guest Cottage Towel and Accessory Hangers

Every guest needs a little extra hanging space for towels, coats, keys, or accessories. Right?  Heck, I think every home needs some extra space for hanging just about anything!

Guest Cottage Towel and Accessory Hangers
I found myself an old board, painted it, stenciled some cute words (from my Silhouette Cameo),
then added vintage hardware for a cottagey look.


BEFORE:
Trash to Treasure Towel and Accessory Hangers
I found part of an oak table top in the free pile at a yard sale a few months ago and knew it had
great potential as a sign. This thing is 41" long and heavy!!

AFTER:

Much, much better after a facelift. I painted the old table top, then lightly distressed the edges and top with fine sandpaper.

Next up was this fake wood lattice thing I found at a flea market for $5. It actually came from an old piano.

I slapped a few coats a paint on it, then distressed it just a little so the details would stand out.  I rummaged through my stash of old wooden knobs and found five that were a perfect fit for the narrow space. The original bolts were either missing or too long, so I cut down some new bolts, then screwed and glued them on.
