3 Outlandish Uses for Towel Rings
Posted October 28, 2009on:
Last week I penned an article about 5 inappropriate uses for appliance pulls, which really gave me a chuckle (and I hope it had the same result for my readers). Inspired by the goofiness as well as the suggestion that some of my favorite home accessories can be recycled for other uses, I decided to share with you my ideas for alternate uses for towel rings. Unlike other things I’ve suggested on this blog, these suggestions are made in jest, but the ideas could theoretically be done- if you’re adventurous!
1- Towel rings as exercise rings. My kids love climbing on the rings on their monkey bars. Imagine how classy they’d feel swinging on their own oil rubbed bronze towel rings! Sturdier than plastic, bronze towel rings can truly create a classier and safer swinging experience.
2- Towel rings as door knockers. If you’re tired of those hideous lion faces that hold a door knocker, maybe it’s time to consider using towel rings instead. Simply screw them into your door and have them knock against the door instead of forcing your guests to bruise their knuckles in search of entrance to your palace.
3- Towel rings as the base for crib mobiles. I don’t know about you, but the mobiles that I’ve attached to my kids’ cribs have fallen, shifted, and come precariously close to crashing down on my little angels. It would be better if crib mobiles could be suspended from the ceiling so that they were more secure and wouldn’t fall when grabbed by children. Imagine screwing a towel ring into your ceiling and then tying strings with toys or bells down to your desired height above the crib. Not only would the added height create a dramatic centerpiece for any room, but it would provide the extra security that every parent wants for their new baby.
If you’re feeling as frisky as I am right now, I’d love to hear your ideas about how you’d use towel rings to enhance your home in creative ways.
