DIY “Stone” Kleenex Hand Towels Holder #CGC #CleanHands #spon

Kleenex Hand Towels Holder
We host a lot of events and parties at our house during the Summer months.  Well, actually, the Fall, Winter, and Spring too!  Over the years I’ve developed routines to get my home guest-ready as quickly as possible.  The room that is most important however is the bathroom.  When guests come to your home, whether they are your best friend or a new acquaintance, you want them to feel comfortable.  Think about what you would like to see walking into a bathroom - sparkling clean toilet and counter tops, an empty, lined trash receptacle, fresh towels, clean and full soap dispenser, and a room that smells nice and fresh!
 
One way I like to make my guests feel welcome in our bathroom is by providing Kleenex Hand Towels. Guests don’t have to waste a second wondering if the cloth hand towel has been cleaned recently and they know right away what to use to dry their hands.  I picked up this beautiful one for Reece’s party a couple of weeks ago and decided to make a cute DIY holder for the box.  I had some scrap pieces leftover from my headboard (that I have yet to share!) and used those to create a unique “stone” DIY Kleenex Hand Towel Holder.

Note: You can use any wood you have on hand to build this box.
1. Measure the base of the Kleenex Hand Towel box.
2. Cut out the base piece.  I made mine slightly larger than the bottom of the box so it can slide in and out easily.
3. Cut the end pieces.  They should be the same width as the base.  Measure the total length including the end pieces and cut out two pieces for the front and the back.

4. Put the pieces together to make sure everything fits perfectly.
5. Spread a thin layer of wood glue on each edge. (Make sure to clean up excess glue with a damp paper towel.)

6. Nail together making sure to line up the edges each time.
7. (optional) I wanted a decorative element on the front of the holder so I cut a paint stirrer to fit the length of the box.

8. Glue and nail down the paint stirrer.
9. Spray paint with your choice of color and finish.  I chose a stone finish to give the holder some textural interest.  The finish looks so awesome!  I can’t wait to try this on spray paint on another project!

Now my Kleenex Hand Towels have their own spiffy new holder and my bathroom looks awesome!
