Make a Kleenex Hand Towels Holder

Hide the Kleenex hand towel box and make your bathroom guest ready!

  Thank you to Kleenex Hand Towels for sponsoring this post on how to make your bathroom guest-ready! To learn more about Kleenex Hand Towels or to find out how you can save money when you buy your own, check out this site.

Our family uses Kleenex hand towels in our guest bathroom and has for over 2 years now. This bathroom is not only for our guests but is the only one on the main floor of our home so it’s used by everyone. Can you say germ city! There is a very important reason why we use Kleenex hand towels and why I love them so much. When my husband had his kidney transplant they told us that bathroom hand towels were the worst place in a house to transfer germs to each other, this is when we started using Kleenex Hand Towels and I can honestly say that we have had a decrease in passing colds and things around our house. I’m going to show you how I get my bathroom guest ready and how to make this great Kleenex Hand Towels Holder.

 How to make a Kleenex hand towel holder - Miss Information

I like to keep our guest bathroom looking pretty and fresh so it is ready when friends come. In August, our best friends are moving from California to Florida and will stopping here for 2 nights on the way we are so excited. I have the guest room all ready and now it’s time to spruce up the bathroom.

I try to make my guest’s feel as if they have no worries so I always try to think of things they may forget. How many times have you gone somewhere and either run out of a toiletry or realized you forgot your toothbrush? My mom used to have baskets with extras so here is my little container that sits on the back of the toilet. In it is an extra toothbrush, toothpaste, body lotion, Q-tips and cotton balls, kids shampoo, contact lens solution and a few other goodies. The other thing I do for my guest’s is provide liquid bath soap. No one wants to use the same bar soap that another stranger has used and I don’t think I need to explain why…just think about where that bar may have been.

 Kleenex also challenged me to make a Kleenex Hand Towels Holder for my bathroom, since this bathroom is limited on counter space I was totally up for this.  The total project was about $10 and took less than 30 minutes start to finish!
 
 
I started out with a crate from Micheal’s Arts and Crafts and some Grey Weathered Stain.
 
 
Using a sponge brush (these were 14 for $1 at Micheal’s) I brushed the stain on the crate
 
 
Then I wiped it off with a rag which gave me that weathered look
 
 
Here is the finished stained crate and I think this took me less than 10 minutes
 
 
 
I needed a way to hang this on the wall that would not pull off every time someone pulled out a Kleenex Hand Towel so I used these 2 products
 
 
I put the ring hangers on the back of the crate
 

and put the phantom hangers into the wall these are great if you are not drilling into a stud and they literally punch right in with your hand no tools required.

 
 
Next put in your Kleenex Hand towels and pull a towel out through the slats in the crate
 
 
Just hang your Kleenex hand towel holder on the hooks. Every time you pull one out another pops out through the crate just like a hand towel should.

    This is such a great idea! It looks so much better than just sticking a box on the counter {like I have}! And I need to take a lesson from you because I am so not guest ready… I always turn into a crazy person trying to get things ready before our guest arrives!! I'd love for you to stop by and share this at my Throwback Thursday link party!! http://www.hubbymademe.com/throwback-thursday-no-
