These DIY Towel Rack Labels add charm and remove the guess work in our high-traffic, multi-use powder room.
A small project that somehow got stuck on my to-do list FOR-E-VER, the labels required a few steps and a bit of help from Mr. Native Texan, and well, you know how that goes in a house filled with little people. Most days we’re lucky to exchange even a few complete sentences!
In the end, these DIY Towel Rack Labels were very simple to execute while bestowing a bit of happiness as I go about my daily stuff. You know, spraying cloth diapers, potty training, cleaning toilets, stealing a few quiet moments away from the chaos…
Plus, I don’t have to worry about guests mistakenly drying their hands on the boys’ just-came-inside-from-making-mud-pies towel, or vice versa. Hooray for one more project crossed off the list!
