rockin' industrial towel rack

I find myself going a little more industrial these days.  
Industrial seems to fit well with my cottage-ish style. 
In the main bathroom downstairs, I've been on the lookout for a new towel rack
and I found one!

Get a load of this great towel rack.  

I didn't even have to stencil numbers on it. It came with them already.
They're actually a bit raised and some of the white paint is a bit worn.

It has 5 industrial metal double hooks so it can hold 10 towels.  
Since we would never have 10 towels on it at once, I'm on the lookout
now for some type of bag or basket or other container to hang on it.

Isn't that cool?

The hooks slide so they can be close together

or far apart.  
It looks awesome with the artwork my son did when he was 10.

I've never shown the rest of the bathroom. 
Here's our huge "G" on the wall and reflected in the mirror.

We painted the builder's basic white cabinets a satin black and added nickel knobs.

We replaced the white toilet seat with a shiny black one.  
I highly recommend it if you have boys.  It actually looks clean between cleanings.

I've had this old vintage medicine cabinet for awhile and it works perfectly in here.
There is no other medicine cabinet so it's functional too.  I have a collection of old locks
on top along with an old iron car and a classic book, "How to be a Rockstar" that matches it all.
This used to be my son's bathroom when his bedroom was downstairs.  
He's a musician so we incorporated that a bit into the space.

So, where did I get the cool towel rack to fit my industrial cottage rockin' bathroom?
I didn't have to go far.

I shopped my own antique booth.  I know, that's not a way to make a profit, huh?
Actually, I shopped my pal Jennie's stuff in our booth.  I bought it from her.

  12. What a cool towel rack. I like your lock collection too. I like that you have collections throughout your home. I kept picturing a galvanized bucket with a number on it as your trashcan in the bathroom. Love the black. I am a fan of black.
