DIY INDUSTRIAL FARMHOUSE PAPER TOWEL HOLDER MOUNTED UNDER A CABINET. ALL SUPPLIES CAN BE FOUND AT YOUR LOCAL HARDWARE, ALL YOU’LL NEED TO DO IS ASSEMBLE AND HANG.
I was tired of our countertop paper towel holder so I started looking for something new, only to find the perfect one on Amazon for $15. I showed hubby and he said it could be made cheaper than that and he probably haD what I needed in the barn (AKA our very own big box hardware store).
He was right, sure enough it could be made for almost half that price. If I’d purchased everything the total was $8, but luckily hubby had most everything in his stash. All that had to be done was assembling and my son did that for me after seeing the parts hanging around on the kitchen counter.
I decided to put it up myself, which was the hardest part in my opinion. First I had to make sure I was using screws short enough to not go through the bottom of the cabinet into the inside cupboard portion. I used 1/2 inch wood screws but it you do this make sure and measure the thickness of your cupboard. Mine are custom made and much thicker than what you can purchase from a store, so you may need shorter screws.
Do you think I could hold that darn paper towel holder up with one hand, the drill with the other and get the screw where it should be? A big fat NOPE…..Well if you know me I’m not one to be defeated so after several tries of dropping the screws onto the counter and stove top I decided to get smart.
I cleared the countertop, sat on it and put my feet into the sink and my head on the stove, all while on my back. That did the trick I was then able to get it up without difficulty. I looked a little crazy but I got the job done and I like it so much better than one on the countertop. I’s now up out of my way!
