Welcome to the 707th Metamorphosis Monday!
Over the last week, I’ve been sharing the dramatic makeover my garage went through recently. This weekend I shared the 2-day process of how the flooring was installed. A painter will be coming out soon to complete a few touchups on the back wall, the garage door and the shutters very soon.
In the meantime, I’ve been assembling a new storage cabinet and just ordered one more. I also added a super practical addition this weekend. In the past, I’ve always had a roll of paper towels on a holder over on the purple potting table and a box of pop-up Kleenex Hand Towels on the tool chest. I just ran out of the hand towels recently, so I moved the paper towels over to the tool chest as seen below.
I’ve decided to not buy more of the hand towels because they required two hands to pull out a single towel due to the way the towels were firmly interconnected inside the box. Have no idea why they were designed like that but I really didn’t like it. I noticed other people were complaining of the same issue in the reviews online. So I got an idea! I decided to look for a paper towel dispenser that I could mount on the side of one of the cabinets nearest the tool chest.
I love how it looks and it’s working perfectly! I didn’t center it on the side of the cabinet. Instead, I mounted it slightly toward the back of the cabinet, not wanting it to be too close to the front edge. I love how the stainless finish looks with the tool chest! (Paper towel dispenser is available here: Stainless Steel Paper Towel Dispenser.)
These are the paper towels I purchased to go inside. You get a bunch: 1,200 paper towels for $21.84. They are nice and thick, really absorb well and I’m very pleased with how they dispense from the holder. (Paper towels are available here: Paper Towels.)
When filling the dispenser, I only placed one batch/package of towels into the dispenser. There was room for a few more, but I read that overfilling or stuffing the dispenser can make it hard to pull a towel out. So far, it’s working flawlessly!
I love that I can easily pull off a towel with only one hand which is great when you’re dealing with spills or messes. In the reviews, people were even putting these dispensers in their home bathrooms. I really do like how it looks here in the garage!
Just wanted to share this since it’s a little addition/tweak here in the garage that I’m totally obsessed over! It’s so nice having the whole top surface of the tool chest clear and free of clutter. If you could use one of these in your garage (or kitchen/bath) you’ll find it available here where I purchased mine: Stainless Steel Paper Towel Dispenser.
I have all the doors on the cabinets now…forgot to take a photo. I’m going to be attaching them to the wall tomorrow and will start loading the dishes back into them this week.
I have one more cabinet coming for the front wall, it should be here by Friday. Once the painter is done, I’ll add the doors to those cabinets and attach them to the wall. I’m looking forward to sharing the final look and what I’m storing in each cabinet once everything is finally done.
Looking forward to all the wonderful Before and Afters linked for this week’s Met Monday!
