Hack this: GRUNDTAL toilet roll holder

01 December 2015

Of all the things to hack, a toilet paper holder is on the weirder side. But we love a good challenge. And we have to admit, we’re pretty impressed with the results!

Several IKEA GRUNDTAL toilet roll holders are hung from the ceiling, each being spray painted in a different colour.

1. WE STARTED BY SPRAY PAINTING GRUNDTAL in different colours, each for a different family member. It’s a perfect way to keep all those pairs of earphones in order.

2. BULKY, HOT, AND TOO MUCH CORD, flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers are just awkward and hard to store. Not anymore.

3. KEEP YOUR CRAFTING STATION IN ORDER by placing rolls of paper on rods rested in GRUNDTAL. 

4. NO ONE WANTS TO RISK SCUFFING THEIR FAVOURITE BAG. Mount a GRUNDTAL roll holder under your work desk. Voilà, problem solved!

5. BATS, BOARDS, BIKES... Nothing is a bigger pain to store than sports equipment. A few strategically placed GRUNDTALs will save you a ton of space.

6. COMBINING THE SOFTNESS OF TEXTILES with the industrial feel of GRUNDTAL isn’t just functional. It’s downright cool.
