DIY Industrial Toilet Paper Holder

Hey guys,

Happy Fabulous Friday! I have a really easy and cool DIY for you today. The industrial look is super hot and everywhere. From caged lighting to barn board walls, distressed shelves, corrugated siding to pipe fixtures. We wanted a few piped fixtures in the basement bathroom and so I started with the toilet paper holder. If you are thinking of this look, this is one of the EASIEST DIYs ever.

Here ya go...
What you need:
A: 1/2 " flange
B: 1/2 " X 2" galvanized pipe
C: 1/2" galvanized elbow
D: 1/2" X 6" galvanized pipe
E: 1/2" galvanized cap
Spray all your pieces with a primer. This is REALLY important. If you skip this step, the paint won't stick to the galvanized pipe.
Then just twist A-B-C-D-E...
After you spray and put it all together you can spray it any 'ole colour you want. To get that industrial iron feel, I picked a black textured spray. A couple coats and industrial toilet paper holder!
Honestly, this DIY couldn't have been easier! The best part? The galvanized piping cost a whole $6! What? Yup. These babies are selling for a heck of a-lot-more online. Hit the hardware store and make your own!
I'm thinking of using this same piping to make a couple of cool industrial shelves.
Have you used galvanized piping before in a DIY? I'm thinking we should have used black screws to attach this holder to wall. Instead I'll just dab a little black paint on them.

Hope you have a great weekend my friends!

Keep it Beautiful.


  1. Well now, I LOVE this! What a great piece of industrial chic. Totally up my alley. For a quick fix on the screws you can always colour them over with black permanent marker until you feel like hauling out the paint again! I touch up all my small knicks and dings on black this way... shhhh, don't tell!

  2. I love it! I used the same method to make some curtain rods, and I love them. They are so sturdy and so much more affordable than one I could buy ready made. I hadn't thought about a toilet paper holder though.... hmmmmm
