I needed a towel rack for the bathroom that I've been working on. I love the antique blanket cranes and thought that a smaller version would work perfectly for a towel rack. This is what I came up with.
If you recall, I had used the tines from an old hay rake for the pegs on my peg board.
I used the remaining parts to make my new towel rack.
It turns back and forth just like the blanket cranes. This makes it nice to slide the towels off the end.
The hinged end is simply a nail on each end that allows the rake to pivot. I really like how it turned out.
I purchased a lovely new reed diffuser at a a local prim gift shop and it now has a new home on top of the medicine cabinet.
I ended up hot gluing it to the cabinet, to be sure it didn't get knocked off.
A view of the medicine cabinet (my husband built the medicine cabinet many years ago) and the towel rack.
This is an overall shot of the bathroom counter area, including my peg board. The bathroom is very small and it is really difficult to get a good picture. I still have to replace the faucet and the light fixture, but then this room is done and I'm off to my next project.
