"T" is for Teeny

I built a teeny, tiny tower.


A storage tower for the bathroom.


Mainly to hide the extra toilet paper.


I used Ana White's plans here and modified the size to 12"w x 26"h x 10"d.


Some pictures without the baskets:



I made the wire baskets from hardware cloth and rope and made the drop cloth liners to fit. 
Check my previous post here for the how-to on wire baskets.  Easier than you think.


This would be a knock off of Pottery Barn's Caleb floor storage:

I'll save the $249 plus shipping and make my own thanks.

More importantly I was able to make the tower fit precisely into the space we have, cost aside that's the beauty of making your own pieces.


I painted it with two coats Behr French Roast paint and primer in one.

  14. I'm sitting here and almost crying. I have looked HIGH and low for storage that would fit between my toilet and pedestal sink. It has been a frustration of mine for 3 years. I have about the same amount of space. I SO NEED TO MAKE THIS... A million thank you's for posting this :)
