I have a thing for office supplies. The office supply section at Target calms me; it’s an aisle filled with the promise of organization in the form of sticky notes, black fine point Sharpie pens and file folders (even though Dropbox and pdf’s have reduced my paper exponentially). Brown craft paper is a close second for favorite office related supplies. So when I saw this wall mounted paper roll on BHG.com, I had to figure out how to make a wall mounted paper roll.
Sidenote: Up until 30 seconds ago I thought the painted floor were steps to the kitchen sink.
I created this wall mounted paper roll on the fly. My goal was to use what I had on hand. I found this size paper roll at Ikea, but check the paint department at Home Depot.
I purchased the solid iron hooks last year on Etsy in anticipation of making this project.
That gives you a look at how to long it takes me to get a project to production.
I decided to add this paper roll under these farmhouse kitchen shelves.
It was a strategic decision after we removed our upper cabinets to make way for our largest project (1/2 wall removal). One of us was a little too aggressive pulling out the cabinets and a chunk of the backsplash came out with the cabinet.
Wall Mounted Paper Roll Supplies
- Craft paper roll (Ikea in children’s department)
- Metal Hooks
- Wood Dowel (Home Depot or Michaels) I think HD was cheaper
- Scrap Wood
- Stain (my favorite stain
I only had two black screws long enough to drill through the wood and wall.
The significance of the wall mounted board is it adds the necessary depth for the wall mounted paper roll can … well… roll.
That’s the extent of my technical description. Oh and there’s that chunk of tile behind below the wall mounted roll.
