"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.

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 :)

Baye said...

So right--looks great, saves money, AND a perfect fit are the reasons so many of us get crafty!

Grace In Full Measure said...

Oh wow they're almost identical! Great job!

poindextr said...

Melissa and Scott said...

Perfect! Looks as good as the PB one but it's even better since it fits EXACTLY in that space. Nice work. Off to see how you made those baskets now.
