Practical Storage (Bathroom Organization)

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!

  1. Very Nice! I just checked out your bathroom before in the towel post. What a difference! You have done an amazing job. We are in the process of finishing off our bathroom. We just painted the walls, stained the vanity and are adding some shelves and a new mirror, but I think it will make a huge difference. Lovin your blog!
