I’ve been wanting to pretty up our bathroom for some time now. My brother, sister and their families will also be here in a little over a month. Perfect time for a bathroom makeover!!
Having a house full of guests, along with three extra little ones, means a lot of trips to the bathroom. One way to keep everything fresh and clean is to use Kleenex Hand Towels. Y’all know when you have little kids, hand towels never stay clean. They end up on the floor, sopping wet or wrapped around a package of hot dogs and placed in the fridge (true story).
Setting out a box of Kleenex Hand Towels, I really wanted to make some kind of holder for it. My husband came up with this AWESOME idea.
He built me a wooden holder with a shelf. Isn’t it fabulous!?!
He made it from an old fence board.
Here is my awesome husband working on the shelf.
We were both working here. Me on my mod podged stamped tissue paper glass containers and David on the shelf. I found the idea for the glass containers from this guest post on Mod Podge Rocks
Here is the shelf after the paint dried.
He leveled it, drilled 4 holes and secured it to the wall with screws.
Now, he didn’t take pictures while he built it, but he did create this diagram for me to share. It’s measured out perfectly. I bought command strips to secure the box and it did not need it. The box slides in and is secure.
All the pieces are roughly the thickness of a fence board. The back piece is plywood and is only a couple millimeters thick. The angle cut side pieces he sawed down to 3″ wide. He put the holder/shelf together with screws and used a high powered staple gun to secure the plywood piece to the back.
David also used a dremel tool to carve some sweet designs into the wood.
Here is how my tissue paper stamped mod podge project came out!
I painted the back of this shelf. You can tell it’s a bit old, right? It needed a little something to help it out. I decided to paint the stripes green to match everything in the bathroom.
I had planned to paint two coats. When David came to check on me, he loved the way this looked. He told me it’s was great like this and looked a lot like bamboo. So, I left it.
Alice decided so try out the Kleenex Hand Towels and holder while I was snapping pictures!
Isn’t she precious!?
Here is a close of that picture on the shelf. It’s Alie digging in the sand. I just LOVE this shot.
Well, there you have it! An awesome holder and shelf to hold your Kleenex Hand Towels! How will you display yours?
