Ikea toilet paper holder makeover
Geesh what a headline. I really don’t know what my issues are with toilet paper holders in our house. They just all bugged the crap out of me (no pun intended 🙂 I took the builder standard ones all down and if you’ve been following me for a while then you saw the toilet paper holder I got for Christmas already. Yeah, I’m that girl who asks for toilet paper holders as gifts. My husband is proud of me. But it wasn’t a cheap one for sure.
So for our master bathroom, I wanted a cheaper option that was still nice to look at. I really liked the simplicity of the Ikea HJÄLMAREN holder but I wanted to spruce it up a little. And that is where standard RubNBuff came to the rescue once again. I didn’t want shiny gold because I have the hex towel holder that is antiquish brass-looking. Of course not real brass.
It’s such an easy, fast and cheap little update. All you need is this little tube of RubNBuff and some Washi Tape. Yeah, you don’t even have to paint, the tape fits perfectly and you can change it out whenever you feel like it. I’m not sure if the pink will stay for long but my daughter had to put her strong opinion out there again and forced me to use pink. Well ok, she didn’t have to force me, I’ll gladly use pink if she wants me to 😉
I also made a black version for our kids bathroom:
List of materials used again:
• Ikea HJÄLMAREN holder
• Washi Tape
That’s it for the day. Quick and easy, that’s how I like it 😉

that is one of the most fun little makeovers! it would make me happy to wipe every time. 😉
I laughed reading this! I need to invest in rub and buff! Great makeover
🙂 I’m not bugged anymore now LOL and thanks
Cute, fun and easy….perfect in my book!
We have the same toilet roll holder! But mine is with the dark looking timber nit white. Your transformation is so freakin cute! I would never thought to do this but I love this, especially the pop of colour down the sides. Gorgeous!!!!
How fun! Love it.
great idea–love it! (and admit it, you TOTALLY intended that pun ;))
Yup I guess you caught me 😉
Who knew a toilet paper holder could be so fancy?!?
The other one is even fancier 😉 and thank you Michelle
So simple and sweet! Lovely update! Especially digging that you can change the tape on a whim!
Changing it out so fast is definitely fun. Thank you
Well gee whz…… how cute, would have never thought of such. I have to order online if I get Ikea, no store for miles around me…. many miles. I am so tempted… how hard is it to attach to the wall?
It’s really easily attached with two screws. Actually so much easier than the old ones I had.
that is awesome!!!!! i love it!
I love this! I have some rub n buff leftover from my lamp makeover. This gives me a good idea what to do with it 😉
Thanks and I love RubnBuff Corinna
Oh, la la you’re getting fancy over there! Only you would think to R & B the tp holder! :)!
Haha, thanks Pam!
Oh, cute and creative. 🙂
Thanks so much!
I loooove rub-n-buff. And I love a quick and easy project too!
RubnBuff is awesome for sure
That looks so good! I had no idea what it was from the sneak peeks!
Oh really? I thought it was an obvious little sneak peak. Thanks!
Oh I do love me a simple DIY! This is so cute and I love the little stripe of pink! (You’re daughter, once again, proves she has amazing taste 😉 ) xxx
Haha I’ll tell her you said that. Thanks! I know she’d love your curtains 😉
Julia… I’m still laughing over that first paragraph. You are TOO funny.
Such a beautiful makeover for a not-so-beautiful topic hahaha.
Yeah it’s not such a nice topic, isn’t it LOL but thanks Amy
OMG that is the best make-over EVER Julia. I just love it!! I can’t wait to see it in the space.
Love it! I still have no toilet paper holder in my house. Maybe I should go to IKEA or order one like your powder bath!!
I solved the powder bath issue now and I think you should get one. It is definitely a show stopper.
You are making me want to change out all the toilet paper holders in my house! Love this fun little makeover!
They will start bugging the crap out of you too and you have no choice but to change them all out. LOL
It’s the little touches that make the biggest impact. This makeover is SO on point!
