Toolbox Towel Bar, A Bathroom Update & a Video
It has long been established that I have a bit of an obsession with vintage toolboxes. ¬†I remember the day I found this one so clearly. ¬†It was about 13 years ago. ¬†There was a vintage "shop", and I use that term loosely, that didn't last long and that was the only time I went. ¬†When she told me the price, I thought I misheard her and I tried my very best to keep a straight face. And then I did a happy dance in the parking lot. This toolbox has been on my dining table, on top of my hutch and in my kitchen. ¬†It has been filled with flowers, pumpkins and Christmas decorations over the years. ¬†And now, it is a vintage toolbox towel bar. ¬†I think she has found her true destiny. I have wanted to use a toolbox on a wall for years, but I had never figured just the right way to do it. ¬†Recently, I set about refreshing our guest bath. ¬†While I was working on it and "shopping my house", it dawned on me how perfect it would be. ¬†And so, my daughter had to stand in the bathroom, holding the toolbox on the wall while I stepped back and tilted my head and realized it would really work! I know it is not most people' taste, but I simply love the way it looks and the repurposed utility of it. And that was just the beginning of spruce ups in our guest bathroom. A vintage galvanized washboard became a quite effective towel holder. A shelf was hung on the wall and flowers were added here and there. ¬†None of the changes were too drastic, but the room just seems so much happier. I put together a video with Wayfair sharing how I did it and a few more details. Thanks so much for reading - and watching!
