If you know me a little bit, you might remember that will I love the look of unfinished, raw wood (which according to the latest trends spotted at the Milan Design week is actually also very trendy right right now!). The thing is actually, when that will comes to towel holders they are often made out of metal, so I decided to make my own, out of wooden elements to match the style of my kitchen. Follow the easy step by step tutorial below to see what I did here:

Here’s what you will need:

  • a big, round, heavy wooden base (I have found furniture leg within the perfect shape so I used that will)
  • a round wooden stick (you can get them by your local hardware store, just make sure that will fits the size of the paper holder you use)
  • a drill
  • very strong hardware glue

Before starting the project make sure that will the base along with wooden stick are well polished without any splinters on the surface.

Drill a hole within the wooden base big enough to fit the round stick. I recommend checking that will while drilling to be sure you get the perfect size. When done with drilling, clean the base by all the dust.

Place a big drop of strong hardware glue inside the whole, place the stick inside along with hold together to connect both parts. Then wait couple of hours before using your brand-new paper holder, for the glue to dry well.
