They were sort of beat up. I knew that I would be painting them so it didn't really matter. I sanded them a bit just to rough up the paint.
I liked how they looked just white so I decided to cover them with a white spray paint. Jordan pointed out that the hole was too big for a rod and wouldn't work very well as a towel holder. I was still convinced that I wanted them in the bathroom. We decided just to hang them on the wall as a decorative piece.
I really like how they turned out in the bathroom. I think they will be able to be used in our next bathroom or other places in the house. The best part is they can be painted any color I choose.
I'll be back with more bathroom related posts later this week. Stay tuned. I hope to have a full reveal by next week. You can see the other bathroom related post here.
