I like the idea for kitchen counter. (AW) DIY wood plank kitchen table picture step by step ~ would also be really really awesome for kitchen counters! Stained black with high gloss protectant over them.
Put your nice clean towel on a filthy, rusty barn door! What a great idea. Reclaimed Barn Wood and Vintage Salvaged Door Handle Towel Holder---I know I could make this! We have two old barns to get the wood from :)
