Tissue Dispenser for GT

I hate wasted space and I hate clutter. With Texas allergies, one thing that is necessary for me is facial tissue. I have been using a visor-mount tissue dispenser for some time, but I had it precariously mounted below the upper cabinets with the mounting arms bent up and shoved between the upper cabinet and window box. It did not hold much and it would fall down on most trips of any length.

I kept looking at the unused area of the mid-curbside window box. Just the right size for a dispenser. I found a nice stainless dispenser on Amazon.

I installed it this morning. I marked the outline of the box on the mouse fur with a Sharpie and drove staples all around to make sure the mouse-fur would stay taut. I used my Sonocrafter to saw out the hole for the box. It was tight! I had to cut about 1/8" from the internal framing above the box to get the box inserted.

I think the result looks great and the location is convenient.

Tissue Dispenser for GT

Very nicely done. Looks better than original.

Do you have a link to the product?

I would love to put one in my Airstream trailer bedroom. What size tissue box does it hold? The flattish commercial ones or the tall boxes?

Amazon has lots of similar boxes at about the same price with slightly different dimensions. I had to pick a shallow box to fit my available space. This one holds a low box. Right now, I have cut down a tall box of tissues and stored half of the tissues elsewhere.

The link to this one.

Nicely done. More elegant than my version, which involved hanging a tissue box from one of my magnetic organizer boards.
