Ever went through every drawer in hopes of finding that one last roll of toilet paper? Well, to fix this problem I’ve built a DIY Cloud Toilet Paper Storage. As soon as you walk through that bathroom door, and from one glance you will know exactly how much toilet paper you’re dealing with.

To build this DIY Cloud Toilet Paper Storage it cost about $15 of material. This is one of the best ways to make a pile of toilet paper look good. Enjoy building!

For more information and to download printable PDFs please visit my website at TheDIYPlan.

Take 3/4" thick plywood and cut six 11"x17" sheets using Table Saw. Glue the sheets by pairs to get 3 sets or boards. Clamp them together and let the glue dry. I usually leave it overnight for the glue to dry completely.

Once the glue dries, print out 11x17 templates provided in the PDF and glue them on top of each board using regular kids' paper glue.

Using a band saw, follow the outline of the template and cut out the cloud shapes. Cutting with Jig Saw might work as well, but the band saw works much better.

I designed the cloud shapes to overlap each other so that the entire cloud holds together stronger. Find a flat surface and place the first layer of cloud shapes. Glue the first and second layers together interlocking the shapes. Also, use a Nail Gun with Brad Nails to secure it in place. Repeat with 3rd layer.

Clamp it together and let the glue dry. Once the glue dries use an orbital sander to send it on the outside and sandpaper on the inside to remove rough or uneven edges.

To attach the cloud to the wall, use Stud Finder to locate studs and mark it on the wall. Place the cloud on the wall at the desired location and height and transfer the marks onto the cloud. Using a Kreg Jig Mini, drill a pocket hole for 3/4" wood thickness on the inside of the cloud, but use 2 1/2" Pocket Hole Screws to attach it to the wall.

Stain or paint before attaching the cloud to the wall. I used Jacobean Stain as my first layer. Then after stain dried, I used my second layer of Chalky Finish Restor pain.

To apply Chalky Finish, spray water on the cloud and apply the paint using a rag. Wipe off extra paint with a dry rag. I also used Polyurethane as my last layer to secure the paint and stain. That's all; you’re done with this beautiful Cloud Toilet Paper Storage.

Then, just hang it up and you're ready to enjoy!

    The build was very clear but I really need more instruction than "simply hang it" did you use brackets??? If so how did you hide them??

    This is a great idea for me as I have 2 cats that have some sort of personal vendetta againet toilet paper! Thanks for this cool idea!

    I will take a recycle one step further and use large (cardboard) type coffee cans, cover them with fabric or contact paper and make this! The bottoms are of metal, which can be left whole (as the full circle) and attached to the wall. Always a repurposing usage for anything! Been saving the cardboard tubes from the toilet paper for crafts and using them instead of bubble wrap for mailing and shipping packages, lightweight and used criss cross within a box, does what I need it to do! Paper towel and gift wrapping tubes as well, all good for reuse!
