TP holder

Do you ever get DIY ideas in the middle of something totally unrelated?
I DO.

Sometime I even wake up at night with some crazy ideas, and HAVE to write it down 
on my DIY list!
The more pregnancy you have, the more you are likely to forget things!
...I was told.

Moving on,
I took down some rectangular box frames from the upstairs bathroom walls, that were holding candles. 
Originally the boxes were used in our hallway, 
to hold picture frames.


Now I had to find a new home for 
los tres amigos! 
(translation the three friends),
and I thought I could use those in our 
master bathroom.



I am always looking into reusing what we have 
in a new different setting.

The small box caught my attention...




I was looking into building a small cube/shelf to replace the old TP holder, 
but this was even better! 
It holds two TP rolls!


One for now, one for later!
...you never know when you'll need a back up!

(ok, I seriously hope you are laughing by now)


This could be an easy project made with scrap wood or pallets, and paint.


The other two boxes are going on the wall,
all to be revealed when I get this 
bathroom finished!


Literally, think outside the box!


We had a BUSY Memorial Day weekend, enjoying the company of friends, grilling out and making the first ice cream of 2012!

Stay Frugal,
Daniela

I like how you used this for TP holder. It looks much better than the traditional TP holder...great upcycle.

I like your thinking with these boxes. So much better to make them purposeful and attractive at the same time. Thanks for visiting my blog.
