Quick Master Bath Update
Previously, our master bath had a sort of stupid towel-hanging situation going on. The shower is at the back of the room, but the towels were all the way at the other side, by the door. Imagine having to walk all the way across that cold bathroom floor, soaking wet, to get your big warm fluffy towel. Yuck. Total first world problem, I know, but still it made no sense to have the towels over there. Not to mention the fact that mine was hanging on the only towel rack in the room, which meant that it also became the de facto hand towel. Kinda weird. Jason draped his on a hook on the back of the door, which prevented the door from opening fully.
I’ve been pinning bathroom inspiration for a while now, and it seems like every bathroom I really fall in love with has the towels on hooks instead of racks.

I love the casual, lived-in feel it gives the room, while still looking put together (it’s not messy “lived-in” like if your wet towel was left on the bed…I never do that…right, Jason?) Okay, I’m totally guilty of leaving my wet towel all over the place. Mostly because I’m far too lazy to fold it and drape it over a towel rod every day. But throwing it up on a hook? Takes less than 2 seconds. That I can handle.
We even had a wall that’s perfect for it, right outside the shower:
Clearly this was meant to be. So last time we were at Lowes I grabbed two brushed nickel towel hooks (in fact, now that I look at it, I think they’re the very same ones from the third inspiration picture above…great minds think alike?), and the other day we finally got around to hanging them up. Oh, and it was my first time using a drill too. I know, I know, I’m all big on this DIY stuff and yet I had never used a drill. Ridiculous. Jason was too busy hovering over me to take a picture of this momentous event, so just imagine me barely touching the trigger so the drill bit spun really slowly and shouting at Jason, “Am I doing this right?! What if I hit something behind the wall with it and the house explodes? Aaahhhh it’s squeaking why is it squeaking?!?”
But I survived. And now I (kinda) know how to use a drill. And, oh yeah, did I mention now we have towel hooks right next to the shower?
No more walking across the entire room shivering and dripping water everywhere to get our towels!
This wall is most definitely nowhere near finished — I plan to add art above the towel hooks, and we might be doing beadboard in this room down the road. But for now we have bigger fish to fry and the master bath is on the backburner, so this is good enough for me.
Anyone else learned to use a new power tool recently?
