Easiest Towel Rack EVER!

I have been steadily plugging along on my projects in the laundry room, and I wanted to share one I did last week that was SO quick, easy, functional, and cheap.
I wanted something to hang wet towels and bathing suits on, so I went looking for a rack of some sort. I found a few out there, but none were the right size, or price for that matter, so I decided to make my own.

I already had a piece of scrap wood in the garage. I spray painted it white. I was gonna leave well enough alone, but then thought why not tape it off and do stripes. I simply put tape on it every 2 inches. Then I gave it a coat of almond spray paint. Look at the child labor...
Well the boys just couldn't get enough of peeling off the tape, so I ended up doing stripes the other way too. That's how we got the plaid look.
From there I just screwed in my hooks and mounted it right on the wall. Voila, for the bargain price of $7 I got a towel rack that fits my needs perfectly. I have already been drying swimsuits on it.

I hope to have the laundry room finished in the next day or so. I will post about it as soon as I do.
