DIY: How to make an Industrial Farmhouse Toilet Paper Holder…
How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you’re on.
How many of you have watched the show Fixer Upper? I’m sure most of us have seen a show or 50.
There are so many great things about Chip and Joanna’s program, but if you are doing your own fixer upper it can prove a bit disappointing that your home doesn’t change as quickly as theirs. Anyone else?
The reality is a home renovation, especially on a budget, takes a good long while.
We purchased our home back in 2014 and are still plugging away. SOOOOOOOO…..MAAAAANY….PROOOOOJECTS!
In an ideal world, we would have
given a right leg loved to remodel both bathrooms. Yeah, with the average cost of remodeling a bathroom $8,000 that would be a big fat hairy NO!
The next best thing, a $100 budget makeover.
We were going for a kind of rustic farmhouse feel and so The Mister came up with this industrial farmhouse toilet paper holder:

- 3/4″ X 4″ Threaded Pipe

|DID YOU SEE THIS PAINTED FARMHOUSE BATHROOM FLOOR? JUST WOW|
- Screw cap onto 3/4″ X 4″ threaded pipe.
- On the other end of the threaded pipe screw the elbow piece on.
- Screw 3/4X 1″ into the other side of the elbow.
- Use a pipe wrench to tighten the pieces down to prevent the toilet paper from spinning while in use. 😉
- Screw flange on 1″ pipe – but do not tighten down.
- Hold put together toilet paper holder onto cabinet to determine where holes will be. (The reason you want to put on the flange and take it off is so you can see the entire holder on your cabinet/wall to determine the best placement.)
- Remove the flange and using two of the four screws fasten flange to wall or cabinet.
- Attach the preassembled unit from step 5 to flange to determine the position of the pipe on the wall/cabinet (you want it straight rather than down so the roll won’t fall off..hahaha). NOTE – Depending on the where the pipe gets tight in the flange will determine the position of the flange on the cabinet. You may need to rotate the flange so the pipe is the correct position when tight.
- Once the flange is in the right position use the remaining screws to attach the holder.
