Hangin' with my towel

For me, good meals are not defined by ingredients used but by the number of hand towels involved in the preparation. I use a bunch! 

But I never seem to have one when I'm working at my butcher block. So I decided to add a towel hanger to its side.

I wanted to use an old rolling pin but didn't have a clue how to hang it. So I went through my garage sale curtain rod supply box. 

There were the usual ugly ones that could work...but like I said, they were UGLY!

There was a way-too-fancy one. Not in MY house!

But then, like Goldilocks found, there was one that was just right! 

Four screws and I was ready to hang with my towel!

Another touch of red for my kitchen. And it was SO easy! 

Where do you hang YOUR towel?


  1. Wow! How creative and perfect. I've never seen anything like it. When I clicked on the link, I thought I would find a new way for storing a rolling pin, but this is so much more interesting.

  2. I have to tell you that I am in total love with this idea!

    Thanks so much for sharing!!

    I am waiting to see if my Kitchen entry is accepted to the Scouting Party. if you would like to read about my Kitchen, there is a link on my side bar as it was my most viewed post!


  3. This is very-very creative! Something to remember for future references!!

  4. Dang we're alike! I use lots of kitchen towels when I cook, too, but we are decidedly NOT alike with regard to the final outcome of our culinary efforts. Can you believe I saw the rolling pin towel rack on Pinterest recently?
    Proof that 'great minds think alike'.

  5. There you go being all Texas Woman again! It's very you and oh, so smart! ~Mindy

  6. I don't - I leave it on the counter! I need this - so cute!
    Pinning it!

  7. This is a fantastic idea!! I just sold a vintage rolling pin at my last yard sale so of course, I'm kicking myself now! Might have to go find another...

  8. this is such a clever idea--love it!

  9. Where did you find the fittings for rolling pin?

    1. The fittings for the rolling pin are the hardware off of a curtain rod no longer in use. Don't know if they sell them separately. Found mine at a garage sale. Hope you find some!

    2. Can use an old toilet paper holder😉

  10. Thanks for quick reply! I'm on the hunt!

  11. Have had the idea, rolling pin and the island for some months. Yet to find the right brackets but the hunt continues.


Your opinion doesn't count, but I'd like to know what it is anyway! Please leave a comment!
