Beach Towel Rack

Warmer weather around here means mom’s pool is open! Woo hoo!

Mom’s pool is right off of their basement/entertaining area with a covered patio (from the deck above).

I recently came across this free standing towel/magazine/blanket rack but didn’t love the price or that the little kids might view it as a jungle gym or that it’d be another obstacle cluttering up the yard or patio.

“Not-in-my-budget” and “not quite what I had in mind” makes me look for do-it-yourself options. I considered making this but while visiting my mom one day, I realized one wall of her covered patio area is a big blank canvas and mentioned to her that she should create a DIY towel bar stretching the length of that wall for hanging beach towels to dry. I thought maybe galvanized pipe and elbows.

But when I recently headed over to mom’s, she had a prettier option secured to the concrete block (masonry bit and screws)…

It’s a large double curtain rod from Lowe’s! {I get my creativity from her.}

It’s perfect for hanging beach towels to dry out of little ones’ reach {pardon “grandma’s playground for the little grandkids”}.

I just thought it was a really great idea and makes an otherwise wasted space useful and no more hanging beach towels on back of patio chairs to dry!
