July 31, 2017 John 0

Remodeling a bathroom comes right behind a kitchen with home projects that pay off, but it can be expensive to get a look that isn’t builder boring. One of the most expensive purchases when remodeling either of those rooms can be the cabinetry. Lucky for us, if a bathroom redo is in your future, you can save some serious cash and make your bathroom look high end custom with these DIY bathroom vanities! Easier than they look and much more charming that a vanity from some big box store, these are one of a kind projects.

Turn a vintage dresser into a bathroom vanity with this tutorial from ‘HGTV’. Make sure you choose a sturdy piece, and obviously one you don’t mind cutting into the top for the sink. We like the square sink with this antique piece!

From ‘DIY Network’, this mid-century bathroom vanity was a DIY project, though unfortunately, there is no tutorial! Which is no big deal, since by now you’ve read enough of these tutorials to have this down, right? This is the same project as the dresser ones above, just with a different style of furniture. My daughter and son in law inherited this exact dresser from his Grandmother! Love!

10 Clever DIY Towel Racks

July 31, 2017 John 0

Bathrooms can be pretty utilitarian spaces, but adding a touch of the unexpected is always an easy way to shake things up. (Decorating, that is. :)) Towel racks are something everyone needs, but instead of sticking with the basic chrome builder’s choice, try these DIY towel racks to add some character to what can otherwise be a boring (or expensive) room to decorate.

From ‘Lil’ Luna’, this DIY bathroom makeover included this old window towel rack they made by screwing the window into studs in the wall, then adding hooks to the bottom edge of the window. This is so charming, and easy!

10 Clever DIY Towel Racks


Carley Kelley‘ took this shot of a towel rack at Joanna and Chip Gaines’ (HGTV) Magnolia Market. They are simply frames overlapped and attached to one another with screws, then attached to the wall. Clever and full of fun!


This DIY Lucite towel bar from ‘A Beautiful Mess’ is a perfect project for the glam in us… A little modern, a little metallic, and so pretty! Made from an acrylic rod and ceiling curtain hooks, easy!


This is not a tutorial, but we think it’s a pretty simple DIY that we are wanting for our own! River stones, a wood plaque from the craft store and some copper piping. You would need a masonry bit to drill into the stone, and some Gorilla Glue or something similar. Don’t forget to weight or clamp the piece together as the glue cures. Photo by ‘Viva Terra‘.
