Mrs. Fixit: Paper Towel to Pretty

Sunday, April 22, 2012

I saw this old wooden paper towel holder at a tag sale and thought with a little sprucing up it would make the perfect spot for a little girl to store all of her hair accessories and jewelry! I'll show you how to do it.

First, sand the finish lightly to remove any build-up and scuff off any sheen on the old finish. Wipe away any excess dust.

Then paint the piece to coordinate with your little girl's room. You could paint it a flat color or paint the different parts in different colors to really make it shine!

It is also a good idea to add a coat of poly to the piece, as she puts items on and takes them off she could scuff up the paint job.

Now, tie a couple of lengths of grossgrain ribbon around one end and let them trail down, these are the perfect spot for storing earrings and barrets.

The rod is the perfect spot for rubberbands, necklaces, bracelts and sunglasses. headbands can be slipped over the side supports.

You could even add cup hooks to sides for more storage!

A simple project from a home cast-off! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple.
