We just moved into a new house and my wife and I finally have our own bathroom in our master suite. I love this for many reasons, but the biggest one is that I no longer find myself low on toilet paper because the kids have used it all. Nevertheless, I still like to have a supply on hand, and my wife didn’t like the package sitting on the floor. I made her a nice DIY Toilet Paper Holder that sits on the back of the toilet and holds 3-4 rolls, or a roll and some books or magazines.
It was fairly easy to make and only took a little over an hour to put together. We used spray paint to paint it, and let it dry overnight before we brought it in the house. We both love how it looks and It is nice to know that there is always an extra roll of Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch on hand. The mega pack comes with 9 mega rolls, so we don’t ever have to worry about making sure we have enough toilet paper on hand. We can keep our home clean and organized and be ready for last minute guests or get-togethers with these rolls because they are 4x the size of a regular roll.
Here are the instructions for the DIY Toilet Paper Holder for your bathroom.
- (1) 1″ x 2″ x 96″ boards
- (1) 1″ x 4″ x 96″ board
- Can of spray paint
- 1 1/4″ wood screws
- 2 1/2″ wood screws
- Tape measure
- Miter saw
- Drill bit
Take the 1″ x 2″ x 96″ board and cut 4 pieces that are 7″ long each. So you will have (4) 1″ x 2″ x 7″ boards.
Take the 1″ x 4″ x 96″ board and cut 4 pieces that are 19 3/4″ long each. So you will have (4) 1″ x 4″ x 19 3/4″ boards
Take two of each size of board and line them up so that the 7″ boards line up with the edges of the 19 3/4″ boards as show in the picture below. Pre-drill the screw holes to help prevent the wood from splitting when you screw it together. Use the 1 1/4″ screws to build these sets.
Build two sets of boards just like this.
Once you have your two sets built, take and attach them together from the bottom with the longer 2 1/2″ screws. I screwed one into the 1″ x 4″ board as well as the 1″ x 2″ board as shown.
Now you have the bottom and back done, we need to add a “rail” to keep the toilet paper or books from slipping or falling off. We are going to use the 1″ x 2″ board to do this. Cut two pieces to 4 7/8″ and another to 19 3/4″. Attach these from the back, bottom, and front, so they are secure, using the 1 1/4″ screws.
Once it is all put together, spray paint it your choice of color and wait 24 hours (or recommended time) before putting the toilet paper and books/magazines in it.
This will make a great addition to any bathroom and you can customize it to match your style.
Pick up the NEW Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch at Walmart where you can also get most of the supplies to build this Toilet Paper holder.
Quilted Northern® is a 100 year old brand that we all know and trust. It works great and the mega rolls last a long time so we don’t have to worry about running out.
