DIY: Nautical Cleat as Toilet Roll Holder

June 11, 2013

If there’s one thing we know by now it’s that, when it comes to creative ways to tie up the bath TP, the possibilities are endless. There’s the branch, the string, the modified wire hanger and now, for coastal dwellers: a nautical cleat as an improvised roll holder.

Don’t want to bother with a DIY project? A favorite quick-to-purchase holder is the Roll With It by Pete Oyler; we like it in Neon Green and in Unlacquered Brass.
