Coffee shelf/ Toilet Paper Holder

This project can best be explained this way – When seated in our master bathroom, there is no place to set a mug of coffee. This solves that problem. The top is corian with a cherry trim. My wife did not see the need for this. She just doesn’t understand. Now my wife informs me that there is a rule that says the toilet paper holder and all of the towel racks must be of the same design. Who wrote that rule? Regardless, I’m now making towel racks (when I am not enjoying a cup of coffee).

I show my wife a very few of the projects but I had to show her this one. Her comment was “Don’t get any ideas, it ain’t happening”. Thanks for posting.

great idea like it very much it´s the same concept as when I take a bath I always have my coffee , cigarets and newspaper or a good learning book and have some qualitytime for my self
and I do believe it´s birthright to read and relax when you going to use the bathroom

When I am seated in the bathroom it is one of the few times during the day when I know exactly what I am doing.

Rich, will your towel holders have a shelf for the coffee or will that have the magazine rack? lol. Very original!

I’m a pretty electronic guy. I read all my newspapers and magazines online. I really need to set up a spot for a computer screen, keyboard and mouse in the bathroom. I KNOW my wife would never go along with that.
