Bathroom Solution

I don't know what it is, but my walls seems to be impervious to toilet paper roll holders. They simply won't stay in the wall. As a result, I had this ugliness and the toilet paper at an awkward reaching distance in my guest bathroom for FAR too long:


I decided it was time to try something new.  I found a nice toilet paper stand that I placed next to the toilet at Ross for $8 and it seems to be a perfect solution. I love it because it even has storage underneath for extra rolls.

The next problem was the ugliness next to the toilet. I know when we move we will putty the holes and try reinstalling the toilet paper holder again, so I didn't want to mess it up any more. What better way to avoid the inevitable than by covering it up??

I did a Google search for the image for a unisex bathroom and found the perfect one HERE:


I traced the image and cut it out of normal white paper. I didn't want it to look exactly like those found in your average public restroom, so I switched the characters and discarded the line down the center.

Then, with a light coat of spray adhesive I stuck the cutouts onto a stained piece of plywood like the one found in my wood grain heart tutorial. I attached a hanger on the back and hung over those horrible holes.


It adds a little spunk to my guest bathroom and those visiting needn't know about the horrible mess underneath! It may seem silly, but covering up those holes makes me happy every time I pass this room.

Have you ever gone to great lengths to cover up an eyesore in your home?
