When I was putting together our guest bathroom, also used by my four year old, I needed something decorative to put in the large wall space behind the toilet. I knew just what I wanted to do – put green towels in a wine rack. It gives off the strong green element I wanted to add, but it is also a 3D piece of art to me. Admittedly, it may never show up at an art museum, but it really does look good to me!
It is so convenient!!! To insert more towels, I fold towels normally and then I roll that up slightly and stick the fat part up front.
When I went searching for just the right wine rack, I knew I struck gold when the actual description of this wine rack included that it could hold towels. Ding ding ding!! Such a simple touch, but it really does look good and all these months later, I still love it! I’m thinking of adding this same towel rack to my girls bathroom as well, but for their space, I’m going to attach it to the back of the door. So versatile.
If you want this look, buy the wine turned towel rack on Amazon. Two days from now, you can have your towels neatly stored vertically. Vertical storage solutions are perfect when you need to save space in a bathroom.
Background On This Bathroom
The bathroom that is the guest bathroom and my 4-year-olds (I know, an unlikely pairing!) was a victim in our 2nd home flood last year.
Here is a little review of the INSANITY that occurred through the last school year that resulted in this bathroom being redone:
- September 2016: Our washing machine floods into the walls because movers didn’t connect it properly.
- September – December 2016: MONTHS of renovation included wood floor re-doing, new walls, new baseboards, painting … and we went ahead and added more changes than required, like new tile, hardwood instead of carpet in my son’s bedroom, quartz countertops in the kitchen, new backsplash, updated kitchen island, shiplap accents, and updated fireplace mantel and tile surround. It made sense at the time to update some of the things while the house was going to be a construction zone anyway.
- December 2016: The EXACT SAME DAY we handed the contractor the last payment for finishing the work for Flood #1/Remodel #1, and the DAY BEFORE we go on a long-awaited family trip to Disney World, my son leaves the water running in his sink as we’re heading out of the house. We come home to an entire side of our home (office, bathroom, hall closet, little hallway, boy’s bedroom, master closet, and a little into the great room that had just been re-done.
- December 2016: We go on our Disney trip anyway while my dad watches over the water remediation here in Texas. When we come home, we do Christmas and the kid’s school break at home. My four year old slept in our room for months starting now, since his room was demo zone.
- January – March 2017: REPAIRS AND CONSTRUCTION TO FIX THE DAMAGE DONE. Since we have to redo my son’s bathroom anyway, we go ahead and upgrade counters, fixtures, tile, and more.
Honestly, that summary was exhausting to even type out. It was a crazy year and I’m glad to have survived it! This bathroom that was the scene of the crime is now the most upgraded bathroom in the house. Having this be such a beautiful bathroom is a silver lining to a very tough year!!! My master bathroom is a little jealous, honestly.
We took these pictures as we were putting the bathroom together. It was really the best time to get some pictures of tile details while the door wasn’t attached and the shower curtain wasn’t up yet, but you’ll have to forgive the vacuum and mess on the counter (my husband is screwing on the drawer/cabinet pulls and hanging the towel hanger). The tile work is so pretty! And it was intentional that there are no more floor boards that could be ruined by water … I mean, a four year old boy uses this bathroom daily.
Don’t forget –
If you want this look, buy the wine turned towel rack on Amazon. It could be at your house in 2 days. As for getting the tile look, let’s just say I know a guy. Wink.
