Bathroom Reading

Submitted by moemoore on Thu, 08/11/2011 - 03:01

We've had a cheapo over the toilet stand in our master bathroom for ages. Its a chrome job that was getting rusty and all it ever held were the magazines that my husband would place on it. I saw the Flat Bookholders plan, and realized that would be perfect.

Then I realized that in order to get my husband on board with my plan, I would have to paint it his team colors - UK Blue and White! (That would be University of Kentucky!)

I measured the wall next to our toilet - 18" was the max width I could do. Then I followed the directions for the small version of the Flat Bookholders, adjusting the width to 18".

Estimated Cost
< $20
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
Whitewood boards
Finish Used
I primed it, then used Glidden's paint to paint it. Used the white for most of it, then the blue for the trim and for the UK that I stenciled on the side (no pic of that yet). Then used poly to coat it all.

Hardest part was by far the stencil - I didn't practice using it before hand, and ended up having to do it 2 or 3 times.
