Nathan put up glass shelves something like these in our bathroom a few months ago. Since then, I’ve “decorated” them with piles of clothes and wet towels. When we were getting ready for our home appraisal last week, I was getting the bathroom spiffed up (painting trim, touching up walls, sealing the tile) and decided it was time to do something with the shelves. It took about 5 minutes and cost me nothing since I only used things I already owned.
I didn’t want to spend a bunch of money to decorate the shelves. And, although we have great storage with those in-wall cabinets, we don’t have room on the pedestal sink for things that would normally be sitting within easy access on a countertop.
So, I started pulling things out of the cabinets for the shelf, and got some practical, pretty storage for FREE!
The towel is a match to the one I posted about here. I bought the glass jars (actually plastic) at Walmart a couple years ago for just a few dollars. They put q-tips and cotton balls within easy reach. On the second shelf, a bottle of lotion, 5 bars of soap stacked up and a toothbrush holder, also found at Walmart a few years ago, finish it off. As silly as it sounds, it has been so nice to eliminate the steps of opening and closing cabinet doors to reach this stuff!
