With the limited counter space and limited cabinet space I wanted a paper towel roll holder mounted to the wall.  Found this one pretty cheap on Amazon.com and the best feature is the whole dispenser slides off the mounting base so you regain over counter headroom if needed for food preparation/other purposes, or to take the roll over to the table for a messy meal.

Two screws and 10 minutes and this was probably my easiest DIY project to date.  But well worth it.

One note to add - I did a similar towel holder under the counter, but it doesn't "squeeze" the roll (in other words - the roll turns freely) like this one.  When we got home from our first trip, the entire roll of paper towels had unrolled onto the counter and floor...lol.  I now throw a rubber band around the roll when we travel, but this would better be resolved by using the type of holder shown above...[rolleyes]

Pboonevt,  Paul, I tried to send you a private message, but could not.  Just letting you know how much I enjoyed touring Vermont years ago.  From Burlington to Rutland.  I loved eating by the beautiful river old mill restaurant in Winooski and standing and standing on the shores of Lake Champlain.  Vermont is a beautiful state.

I found a black, metal paper towel holder on amazon.  I like it because it blends in with stove hood and is in a perfect location.
