"A few weeks ago I decided it was time to remodel one of my bathrooms. It was seriously outdated and in need of a major makeover. When I say outdated, I'm talkin' major, decades old outdated. Golden oak cabinet, pink tile, chrome fixture outdated. The more I looked around the more I realized this bathroom was in some serious need of a trip to the 21st century. I started looking for some ideas that would be quick, easy and wouldn't cost a fortune.

  I began my DIY remodel quest where all great ideas are born. Yup, you guessed it... Pinterest! It all started with a before-and-after pin of a bathroom cabinet. It looked exactly like my golden oldie, and I could see the potential ahead. The secret apparently lied in a revolutionary staining method. This technique involved using a gel stain made by General Finishes. The medium could be used on everything from traditional solid wood to veneer and even... paper laminate.
Before I tackled the cabinets head on I wanted to get a feel for this new gel stain. I decided to make something I've been wanting for a while: a small decorative wood crate type bath tissue holder. I was so excited with the result I couldn't wait to continue staining away!
For this first post in my bathroom makeover series I'm going to show you how to make this cute, stylish decorative bath tissue holder. What's even better is that you can customize to fit your own color scheme. Keep reading and you'll see exactly what you'll need to make it."
