Leftover Lucite

Hi friends!!  Happy Hump Day.  I am finally feeling somewhat caught up on life after going on our vacation.  It is very Spring-like her however, and I am starting to get Spring fever.

As some of you may know, a few months ago, I did a DIY tutorial on lucite drapery rods.  I LOVED how they turned out and you can read about it here.  The added bonus of ordering the lucite from Nationwide Plastics was that they custom cut the rod to fit your window.  Little did I know that they would package and send the extra lucite that had been cut off with my order.

So, I find myself with 4 1/2 feet of lucite for another DIY project.  A quick glance at Pinterest gave me some ideas.

I could do a DIY lucite towel bar for my new bathroom.  In fact, a towel bar is one of the few things I have not installed.  I think it would go well with my black, white and brass scheme.

I could make pulls for a door or cabinet.  How glam is this?

I could update some of our kitchen cabinetry!

If I have a tiny bit left over from one of these projects, I could also DIY a lucite towel hook.

I could do a custom closet rod.  This was in a boutique, but imagine the possibilities!!

If you are a real baller and have a ton of lucite, you could also do a stair railing.  Sorry to disappoint, but this project is way out of my league!!

I am leaning towards a towel bar because that is the most practical for me at the moment?  Would would you do with leftover lucite?

Have a fabulous day!




  1. A towel bar sounds fabulous to me. Can’t wait to see it.

  2. Oh how fun! I love all of these ideas! Lucite really is an instant glam maker!:-)

  3. To me lucite and gold is the perfect combination of modern and classic. I love how it makes the space feel larger and more airy if it’s a large furniture piece and I like how it can add elegance to a furniture piece in the form of a door knob or handle. Thank you for sharing!

    • I think that is why I like it so much Dagmara. I like a traditional look, but like to mix it up with modern elements, so lucite and brass is the perfect combo for me!
