Toilet roll holder shelf

Having an Impact
Having an Impact

This streamlined shelf not only looks attractive but also makes fantastic use of space. It's a novel means of storing your toilet rolls. 





The project


I used Pine lengths about 110mm wide and just cut them down to the typical depth of a roll of toilet paper. I did some rough dry fitting to find out how many rolls would fit depending on the size, and came up with a measurement that looked about right relating the overall size of  the wall which was going to hang.


The shelf was trial-and-error. There is a formula for cutting a shelf with beveled edges on it so it fits diagonally flush to the corners. Once it was made, I just used some timber stain and brushed it and then used a old rag to spread the stain out and thin it out enough to see some of the original Pine.


To attach it to the wall I used wall plugs and two long screws. It's not great, but it's still sitting on the wall no problems. In hindsight, I could have secured a small batten to the wall and then put screws down through the shelf part and into the batten.

Amassing an Audience

Nice original  idea @Rodney   thanks for  sharing.


I already thinking of my  own design shape  ideas on a blank boring toilet wall :smile:


Practical too a frame like that can hold a  whole big packet of  rolls and we could eliminate toilet roll storage in laundry.
