Crate Storage for 'the Necessities in Life'. :)

15 Minutes

We all have the same issue. Where do we store the extra toilet paper? It needs to be within reach but how can we do it in a cool way?

My own answer came when I came across an old vintage crate and an even older vintage license plate...

The outcome is not only super cool, it works too!

Here's what I did:

I had this crate in my stash. So I decided to attach it to the wall.

It was handheld in place, then I screwed it directly to the wall. No wall anchors were needed however you could do that if you planned for the crate to hold more weight.

Then screw the licence plate onto the crate, and you're done! Instant funky little cabinet, junk style.

Sealing the license plate with a clear spray sealer would be a good idea and would also add a little sheen to the metal.

I simply chose to have the bottom row of rolls remain in their packages.

All I know is, this toilet paper crate storage idea functions awesome and looks pretty cool too, rustic enough to please the junkiest junker!

Think you'll give this idea a go too?

    Love it! My dad collected license plates. I'm always looking for ways to use them. What is the paint color on your walls? It looks like what I am looking for for my dining room! Thanks!
