Since we remodeled our 1/2 Bathroom, I also wanted to update our hardware. Because it’s a 1/2 bath, I only needed a toilet paper holder and a small hand towel holder.
I’ve always been crushin’ on the industrial / galvanized piping look. I ALMOST bought them online. Then it dawned on me. A quick trip to the hardware store and I could easily do this myself! The hubs was happy!
Yup, I’ve been hanging in the plumbing department of Home Depot a lot lately. I’ve also bought a couple different paper towel holders for our kitchen over the years and never quite found one that was BOTH stylish and functional. I usually buy the “double rolls” and many times they are too big for the holder. Big bummer. Also, the hubs NEVER “remembers” to put the top piece back on when putting a new roll on.
So, ever since the remodel, our paper towel roll has been chillin’ all alone next to the sink. Then one day it HIT me! Simple, cute AND no dang top to take off and on! CHECK. IT. OUT!
My first stop was to Joann’s. I grabbed this! It’s an 8″ Wood Pine Plaque.
You could also use something like this. I was tempted but stuck with the pine. If you make one with this, I wanna see! K? Thanks 🙂
Next stop, Home Depot. It can be overwhelming. Just look at the box fronts. Once you figure it out, it’s easy peasy. Make sure all your pieces are the SAME size.
This is what I picked up:
2 – 1/2×6″ Nipples
1 – 1/2″ Cap
1 – 1/2″ Floor Flange
1 – 1/2″ Coupling
I painted the wood with Annie Sloan Old White Chalk Paint. This way it matched our cabinets.
Center and screw the floor flange to the wood.
Connect the remaining pieces.
Connect the bottom nipple to the floor flange.
That’s It! YUP. Simple. Plus, no taking a top piece off to replace the roll and it fits any size roll. BONUS: No one else has it! I’m lovin’ it.
