I love this idea I found on the blog of Junk Camp. Since today is Earth Day, I thought using old wooden hangers for a towel bar was very appropriate way to say "thank you" to Mother Earth.

In the upstairs bathroom, I repurposed two old wooden hangers as towel bars. By anchoring a scrap piece of dowel to the wall before the hanger was attached with 2 screws, I created a simple, yet sturdy place to hang a towel!
   Notice that the metal "hook" on the hanger makes a great (and easy) place to quickly hang your towel - no excuse for wet towels on the floor! And the wooden form is a great place to add a washcloth or even a hand towel.
