Quick project to make our entrance less ugly…the dirty dog towels and leashes will really look classy now.

In the last picture, the trim piece is pulled off to show it’s held in place with rare earth magnets, allows for the screws to be positioned anywhere to hit studs while still being hidden.

That’s a great install idea! The whole thing looks great. Just installed one at my house too, and you can clearly see four trim head screws on the face of it :)

Thanks for sharing..

I really like the look of that, did you just think it up, or is it based on one you saw? I’ve been looking for a towel rack in the bathroom, that fits all of the criteria on my list, and I haven’t seen it before, and just when I thought I had seen every towel rack/coat rack out there.

Nice work, thanks for posting, and Congrats on your 3.
