Rather than picking up basic towel rods from the home improvement store, one was made from black steel pipe, elbows and flanges. To create the towel rods, pipe was picked up in a standard size, then screwed into elbows which fit directly into flanges. Once the three parts were configured properly, the flanges were attached to the wall with drywall anchors and screws.
Long bars across the front of this vanity mimic the drawer pulls, but serve as handy towel rods. Vertical lines are a subtle design theme carried through in the backsplash, window shade and floor tiles.
