This one is ferret-proof. It's our room divider. This little cabinet is on wheels which are hidden by some wood. The bottom 2/3 has a single door with room for 16 to 20 rolls of Charmin. The top 1/3 is a hinged compartment that hides toothbrushes, etc. It's a real medicine "chest."

The toilet backs up to it, nearly unseen. The toilet points away from us in this photo. I gained an extra couple inches by getting rid of that space behind the toilet and the "wall."

Sorry Jade, I was on my droid waiting for W to leave the store. :D I figured it was for a funny. :wink:

I love the barbie on a crocheted toilet and the crocheted tp hiders. My mom had one with the half doll, but I don't have room for anything to sit on the tank because of where I put the towel bar. I guess the family will just have to make sure the toidy paper holder is always full until I find something that catches my eye.

Not the dash, the back window. And not just a car, a VW Bug! :D

Vaso, you're hysterical! :lol:

Ferrets, yeah, that limits you a bit...

I really can't top what already has been suggested.

Since the weather pretty much sucks, I have been looking around for more ideas. Here is what I have found.
upcycling an old potty lid.

Anyway......while I was looking at shabby junk chic tp storage I got to thinking I have the perfect thing! An old wooden butter churn :D I don't think it was ever for really making butter. I think its just decorative, but it's old and the ferrets won't be able to get inside to shred the tp :lol:
