As I was remodeling our tiny water closet, I came to realize I'd need a cabinet for storing toilet paper.



I already had the bifold doors; a thrifting find from years ago. So I used this tutorial with some modifications to build a cabinet from scrap lumber we had around.



I did a copper and grey crackle finish on the exterior, just copper on the interior and adjustable shelves. Then I modified a vintage door knob we had around to be a cabinet knob.





We actually had a similar cabinet that came with the house and I originally thought I'd refinish it and use that. BUT, it would not fit a double-roll size TP and so would not work. I also wasn't super excited about a mirror in that particular spot.

I think it is lovely the way you have created a work of art for storing loo rolls. That metallic crackle finish is really pretty.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Great job, excellent finish and love the knob (that sounds totally wrong, lol). You are so creative and daring with your projects. Inspiring!

The old similar cabinet looks pretty perfect at the first glance and I wouldnt mind it having a mirror too because you'd be facing the front anyways. Sadly, it can't hold TP rolls! So there's that!

You can never go wrong with additional space in the bathroom. Apart from TP rolls, this new addition looks like it can accommodate toiletries as well and maybe even a plunger! Great job!
