Renovation A.D.D.

I am sure it is clear that I am having a hard time sticking to working on JUST the basement these days but, I tell you, if I have to spend more than a few days down there at a time, I might go nuts. Especially when the work involves popcorn ceilings and dimensions that may or may not be big enough to fit a standard-sized bathtub. Don't even ask.

So this weekend I took another small detour and built this. It solves the "I've got NOWHERE to store TP!" dilemma that our powder room has been facing for years (and years and years).

I also painted the powder room. Goodby garish red, hello soft and soothing grey-green.

The red was so awful I couldn't bring myself to take before pictures. Trust me, it's much better now.

Fore more details on how I built the tower and the finish...just in case you're interested...check out my brag post on


  1. It looks like it could double as a bedside end table. Looks fantastic!

  2. I was thinking that too, Liz! It's just the right height for a bedside table. I'll eventually build something different for that bathroom, I think, and then this will need to find a new home.

  3. Hillary I made nearly the same tower in a teeny tiny size for exactly the same spot (you might have seen it over at Ana's). Great minds think alike.


Thanks for reading! I'm looking forward to hearing what you have to say.
