At the beginning of each year I find myself cleaning, purging, organizing. I’m sure I’m not alone in this. The new year is a fresh start for all of those things. Our little house only has one upstairs bathroom. It’s large in space but lacks any space for bathroom storage. When I say no space, I really mean it. The only storage options are the medicine cabinet and the under the counter cabinets. We don’t even have drawers! Sad. It wouldn’t be so horrible if two adults and one little girl didn’t have to use it every single day.
So one of my first projects of the new year has been to bring in some bathroom storage and get the clutter off of the counter.
For me, these shelves are for function. While I love how pretty they are, they serve a purpose. Bathroom Storage!
I didn’t do a full tutorial on the shelves because they are super simple. The brackets came from Lowe’s and were about $3 each. The actual shelves are just 2 ft pine boards stained in Minwax’s Classic Gray. That was my first time using a gray stain and I love it.
Since the shelves are for bathroom storage, I organized my makeup brushes in mason jars.
And filled the woven baskets with my make up. Which by the way is a huge step up from the little box I had all my make up on. I love these little baskets. They are decorative yet functional. One the lid is on them you would never know it was full with goodies.
