That's the cutest thing I've seen in ages. Bathroom is beautiful. Almost too nice to use!

I agree that I think it's very cute. I've seen people dinged on here before for having guest towels that are "purely decoration" but I am one of those who likes to have decorative towels. Not that they couldn't be used of course, but with the quality of towels these days, they will shrink and fade very quickly, and all that decorative effort would have to be replaced Wink I seldom have guests, so I prefer to have the decorative towels to please my eye when I pass by...when I DO have guests, I set out some more utilitarian towels for their use, and hope they get it!

I'm bookmarking this to do in my new condo as I don't keep bath towels on big rod until we have overnight guests. For general hand washing purposes I will still place a couple of nice hand towels on the vanity. Nice job!

How clever. Is this idea yours? Your bathroom looks warm, inviting and gender neutral.

Fancy, we used to see those displays in model homes in Virginia, very nice way to show 'ready for guests' type of look. An empty towel rod just screams...FILL ME!

My point exactly. Thanks Nitalynn. I seldom have guest also. I'm sure they will understand. I love decorative towels and I hate them when they get washed.

Thanks Beau's Rose. Simply choose your colors and find a wide ribbon to tie it all together.

It is just fabric, the roll gives it the shape. IF you click on the photo it will take you to Pinterest where the photo was found. Then click on it again and it takes you to the Etsy shop the photo originated from. Smile

what a wonderful way to store towels...used to drive me crazy until we found a 3 basket wrought iron piece at costco...it was supposed to be a freestanding piece in a kitchen for fruit (which my dd does use) but had a space in my bathroom!

my mother used a basket which she hung on the wall by the shower for washcloths...
