Brooklinen Towel Review + Referral Code for $25 off

After trying Brooklinen sheets last summer and giving them a good review, I knew just where to turn when my towels were in dire need of replacement. After giving them a try, read on for my full Brooklinen towel review.

Overall Feel

As the name suggests these towels are super plush. Much more than any towels I’ve had before and they are the softest as well. However, with the plushness is a heavier towel which I’ve really only noticed when wrapped around my hair and trying to balance on my head.

8/10- Great feel but hard to wrap around your hair


The Brooklinen towels come in two sizes; the bath towel 30″ × 58″ and the bath sheet 40″ × 70″. We went with the bath towel even though I thought the luxury of a 70″ towel would be wonderful. My husband talked me down to the more reasonable size. Which even though this is their smaller towel, it is still a good 5″ longer than my old ones. If you’ve been on the hunt for a larger towel this would be a great option for you.

10/10- Love that even the smaller size is larger than my previous ones.

Color Selection

One downfall of the Brooklinen towels is the limited color selection. They only come in the four colors below.

I always get white so we can bleach when needed but they are missing some staple colors like navy or brown.

7/10- The colors they do have are nice but not the largest selection.


The bath towels run $69 for a set of two while the bath sheets run $89 for two. These do make for an expensive set of towels but are on par with the Parachute versions. One major downfall is that you have to buy them in pairs. While this isn’t bad initially, if you ever need to replace just one you’re out of luck.

7/10- Quality naturally costs more but having to buy in pairs is inconvenient.

All in all for my Brooklinen towel review, I would give them an 8/10. Solid option, soft, thick, and plush but a much needed expansion in the color options would help as well as the ability to buy them individually.

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
