DIY Copper Paper Towel Holder


Copper and metallics are beautiful all year round but specially during the holidays. The timeless look of copper, gold and silver never go out of style. I knew I wanted copper pieces as my accent for my kitchen décor.  Unfortunately, copper is not always affordable and so when I spotted a copper paper towel holder, I thought I could easily DIY myself.
I headed to my local hardware store, purchased some copper piping and got to work.
