Sure, dispensing Toilet Paper isn’t one of the most glamorous of style’s duties. however if you could DIY a simple, brass number of which added form in addition to also function to your bathroom space, could you do the idea? I think you should give the idea a try. Especially when paired with This particular side vanity storage unit, your bathroom will look amazing.
Ready to tackle this particular one? the idea’ll only take about 15 minutes to make, in addition to also you’ll love the idea for years.
DIY Level: Beginner
- 6-gauge brass wire (example uses 1 1’ length)
- Two (2) brass screw hooks
- Heavy duty pliers in addition to also/or needlenose pliers
- Old towel or rag
Before you begin, you’ll want to remember of which every time you use pliers to bend your brass wire, you will want to soften the pliers’ potential damaging factor by using an old towel or rag as a buffer between the pliers teeth in addition to also the wire itself. today, to actually start your brass toilet paper holder, begin by wrapping one end of your brass wire inside towel.
Grip the very end of your brass wire (covered in towel) with your heavy duty pliers. (Note: The thicker the wire, the lower the gauge, so 6-gauge can be pretty thick, meaning the idea’s not super easy to bend.)
In as smooth in addition to also strong a motion as possible, curve your pliers-holding wrist toward you to tightly bend the wire’s end.
You’re trying to create a smaller hook on the end of your wire.
Repeat this particular process (don’t forget the towel’s buffer) on the various other end of your wire. The two hooks should be facing the same way.
Grab a roll of toilet paper to use as a measuring benchmark.
Also, grab a measuring tape or book of which can be the width of your toilet paper-holding space.
Lay the measuring tool (in this particular case, the book) on a work surface with the toilet paper roll on top. This particular can be to help you visualize the space constraints of your toilet paper dispensing space. Also, lay your two brass hooks on the sides of your book, flanges aligned with the sides of your measuring tool in addition to also hooks facing inward. The center of your hook arcs will be your target for your brass wire hooks as you craft the toilet paper holder width.
Gently bend the brass wire evenly so the end loops are even with the centers of your side brass hooks. Looks like a grin, doesn’t the idea? Feel free to smile back.
Using your pliers of choice in addition to also your old towel, begin bending 0-degree corners in your brass wire so the idea creates a flat line horizontally in addition to also two shorter vertical lines (each that has a looped end). This particular longer flat part will be where the toilet paper roll goes. Tip: When trying to create sharper corners, grip the towel-covered wire with pliers in one hand, then use your various other hand to bend the remaining wire around the pliers. In various other words, to create loops inside wire, move the pliers-holding hand/wrist. To create corners, hold the pliers-holding hand/wrist still in addition to also move the rest of the wire.
Bend until the loops line up with the hooks in addition to also the lines are relatively straight. This particular might take some trial in addition to also error bending in addition to also unbending in addition to also rebending. This particular photo represents the first attempt, in addition to also you can see the idea’s a little off.
When the corners in addition to also lines are satisfactory, lay the toilet paper holder on a flat surface in addition to also check for alignment there. In this particular example, the left side was raised a bit. I simply used my old towel in addition to also pliers to straighten out the longer straight piece.
Slide a roll of toilet paper onto your brass wire.
Hold the idea up inside space where the idea will hang as a kind of “dry fit.” Consider how high/low you want to hang the idea, as well as how forward/back you want the idea. Remember of which not all toilet paper rolls are the same size, so you want to allow for larger/thicker rolls if needed.
Screw in your first brass screw hook, based upon your dry fit.
One trick for easily screwing in screw hooks in addition to also screw eyes can be to use a screwdriver, hooked into the hook or eye, to turn the idea near the end as the idea gets harder to turn. the idea’s a finger-saver, This particular tip can be.
Measure the position (vertically in addition to also horizontally) of your first screw hook to ensure you can mirror the second screw hook. This particular will keep everything level in addition to also even.
Mark, then screw in your second screw hook. Adjust the hooks to ensure the openings face upward in addition to also slightly backward – opposite the direction most people could pull their toilet paper off.
With the toilet paper holder’s looped ends facing backward, install the idea onto your two screw hooks.
Congrats! the idea looks awesome.
Such a simple yet unique way to dispense toilet paper in a stylish bathroom. We love the smaller touch of brass here, a nod to luxury in addition to also class. (Which almost makes things even when positioned next to a plunger. Almost.)
The beautiful thing about this particular easy DIY toilet paper holder can be of which the idea’s easy to take off, switch out, in addition to also put back on. Let’s be honest – the ease of those three steps are key to actually getting the idea done.
As with any DIY project, this particular can be modified in addition to also customized to fit your space in addition to also needs. You could do the same thing with screw eyes attached to the wall behind the toilet paper roll; the toilet paper could hang against the wall in of which instance.
You could also create a triangle in addition to also hang the idea via 1 screw hook above the roll. However you choose to make the idea, we wish you love the simple sophistication of style inside details.
