    A present from me to me!

    Can't post it in woodworking, because it's just something I slapped together in about 20 minutes.

    I've been wanting something to keep my magazines organized in the 'reading room' for quite some time.

    So I slapped this together last night. Took longer to spray paint than it did to put together. I'm calling it a prototype and if ti works, I'll do one out of real wood after I finish a few other projects.

    Are you lucky enough to have the desired location be between the studs? If so, you can recess it a-la-medicine cabinet, trim the outer edge and it will take up less room (speaking as someone who has a very small "nook" for that part of the bathroom).

    You know, I think I just might have enough room right where that is currently placed. I'm planning on painting it and doing a little remodeling in there. Might have to explore that before I do the painting.

    Is that before or after the table?

    When you explore it, be sure you can insert and remove a new roll of TP .

    Enjoy,

    Two rolls of TP? What? Like 120 grit for you and 240 grit for Sharon?
