A few weeks ago I went to Ikea with my best girl and our sweet friends. It was a rare weekday trip without the whole crew. My mom kept the boys for us, so it was a girls’ date. It was so fun.
We browsed and brainstormed lots of ideas. You walk in that place and inspiration is everywhere. I got a few things to help decorate our foster care room, and as soon as we got home I was ready to put them to use.
But there was a problem.
I got home and laid my new items in my inspiration pile on the floor, and I started to put the curtains on the rod. I soon realized I only had bought one hook to hold my curtain rod. FAIL!
Needless to say, I was disappointed. I did not want to figure out a time to go all the way back downtown to Ikea for a simple curtain rod hook.
As I pondered my Ikea fail moment, I remembered I had two towel hooks that I wanted to hang on the wall. It came to me like a lightening bolt: “could the towel hooks hold my curtain rod?”
After a little convincing that it would be awesome, I got Matt to help me hang them up. It totally worked! We now have unique curtain rod hooks. I love the repurposed and creative use for the hooks. I think it adds a nice charm to the room.
What do you think? Would you use towel hooks to hold a curtain rod?
I’m sure you have a story like this. Sometimes a failed moment can lead to an idea that was even better than the original. It just takes a spoonful of imagination! Just between you and me, I’m going to claim my “mistake” was done on purpose, after this post 😉
