A week or so ago as I was browsing Pinterest I saw a towel drying rack, made out of PVC pipe, that I wanted so badly to go with our new pool. It was for sale on Etsy…but it was $200!!! I showed it to Bric and we decided that he could make one for LOTS cheaper and that was our plan. Then, as with often happens in our life another plan came along.
We happened to run across pieces of baby beds. They were no longer able to be used for babies and we hated to see them simply go to the landfill and the whole time we were standing there all I could think was “Hey, that would make an awesome towel rack…and a bench!” See, we also need more seating on our deck. So after some scheming with Bric we decided that it could be done and that we should re-purpose the beds into something useful. And we came home and did it. I say WE…like I did anything other than stand there and sweat and tell Bric what a great job he was doing. Hey, someone has to supervise.
All “we” did was angle the two sides into an A-frame, attach some concealed hinges, mount a stabilizing bar on each side near the bottom and Viola! You have a towel drying rack that is perfect for pool-side!! It was a very easy DIY / Craft project from where I was standing at least…so anyone should be able to take it on.
So, here is what our new towel drying rack looks like:
Now if I can just teach Tate to use it instead of throwing his wet towel in the floor!
