How to make a Metallic Bow + Robe Holder


Does your daughter have a zillion bows and multiple robes or cutesy towels with hoods on them? Do you need a way to hang up the robes and display the bows to see what you have? I was facing the same issue and had to think of something fast! With two daughters, that means double all things girly. Double the bows and double the robes and towels. Towel racks just aren't suited for all of our bathroom needs so I came up with little easy solution!

A few years ago my mother in law came across this princess frame at a yard sale which was a mirror but the mirror was missing. To start out with it was actually pink with a yellow crown. I had painted it black to go with my daughter's past room and when I moved into my new home, it was begging to be used. The bows were in a big ziploc rectangle storage box and I was constantly digging through it to find that one certain bow that they were begging for. I also had little towels and robes strung out all over the bathroom floor. I was tired of digging and tired of the mess so I ran to the garage and pulled out my supplies and got to work.

Who's is the fairest of them all? I'll let you decide?

Here is what you need:
FRAME
DECORATIVE METAL SHEET FROM MICHAELS
METALLIC GOLD SPRAY PAINT. I USED VALSPAR
HAMMER
WALL HANGING KIT
STAPLE GUN
CUP HOOKS
DROP CLOTH TO SPRAY PAINT ON

1. Start out by using the staple gun to staple down the metal sheet to the back of the frame. Then I added 2 sawtooth hangers with the little nails. One on each side.



2.Screw in however many cup hooks that you need for your robes across bottom of the frame. I didn't get a picture of it sorry. You'll see what I mean in a minute.

3. Spray paint the entire thing. Frame, metal sheet and cup hooks. Let dry completely.

Then you are DONE and ready to hang!

Hang it up and add your bows & robes!

This is real life around the VRS house. I did add a lot more of their bows after the pictures. I clipped  the bows with alligator clips to the metal where there are the little holes in the pattern. Now the girls can see what they have and choose more quickly when getting ready for school. It makes mornings easier!
