First of all, it's good to be back! I truly have a new respect for bloggers because staying committed to posting regularly is hard work.
So, I wanted to share with you guys a fun little DIY project I came up with. I love solving simple problems around our house.
Despite having a dishwasher, we are dish washers. Because of this we go through countless paper towels and have loads of random dish towels laying around. IT DRIVES ME NUTS!! I had to come up with a solution for this... check this out!
I came up with the idea of having towels specifically dedicated to one thing. Hands-for drying your hands & Dishes-for drying off dishes. After searching high and low for towels with those words on them, I decided to make my own!
I think I've mentioned how much I love, love, love Kohl's. That's where I purchased these lovely Food Network Kitchen towel bars. They retail for $9.99 but of course I got them on sale for next to nothing (they were 50% off, then I had a coupon for 30% off-big smile!!). No installation necessary, they just slide onto cabinets.
It's nice to have an actual spot for the towels, plus I love how the stainless steel pops against the cabinets!
I wanted to jazz them up a bit so I simply cut a scrap piece of fabric and ironed on the letters (which were purchased for a buck or two at Wal-Mart). I was too lazy to sew the fabric strips onto the towels, so I just used iron-on stitches (Stitch Witchery).
Not the best pic-but this one says Cucina!

As you can see, I couldn't just stop at just making the Hands and Dishes towels. I used leftover letters to spell out Cucina (Spanish for kitchen)!! Plus, I like how it pulls the kitchen together!
This fun & simple DIY project cost me under $20 and took less than an hour!
