I got tired of seeing all of my childrens wet towels on the ground, so I decided to try and make something to fix it. I got an old piece of wood from the hubby's junk pile and got to work. After painting the wood white with regular old acrylic paint and after my darling daughter picked out this lovely paper, I modge podged it onto the wood and put another layer of modge podge on top. I let it dry and then sanded down the edges and applied a coat of stain. After that dried, I attached the hooks with my (er, my husbands, but what's his is mine and all that, right?) drill and then used a hammer to attach a picture hook to the back. I made the mistake of putting it right in the middle of the board, which meant it would lean to the right or left if you only put one towel on the rack. Luckily, after reading several of my trusty craft blogs, I used a piece of velcro to secure the corners and now it doesn't move at all and all of my towels are off the floor! Yeah!
