Our bathroom has NO storage. Well, I mean, when we moved in it didn’t. One of my grandpa’s little girlfriends donated this bookshelf to us, and it is perfect for the room.
It’s literally the perfect size and holds everything we need. Lots of wicker baskets and jars contribute to the look. Everything is in reach and it all makes sense.
The top shelf holds all of the stuff we access daily…face cream, lotion, contact solution, shaving cream, etc.
The second shelf holds things that are a little less important…a chunk of my hair stuff, and a little band aid box. You’d be surprised how much we need band aids in this house.
The third shelf holds a basket full of random lotions, perfumes, and travel sized things, as well as nail polishes. Anyone know any cuter ways of storing nail polish? I’m not a big fan of the ziploc container…
The very last shelf holds things we aren’t going to need immediate access to every day: rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, makeup bag, and a small first aid bag. (Fun fact: I pulled that basket out of my office closet when I redid it last week).
Sorting the bookshelf according to usage is so much easier, and I didn’t even plan it out that way. Since we don’t have much space or storage in the bathroom, we utilize the linen closet that’s in the living room (strange place, I know) for towels, extra hair stuff, tissues, etc. For awhile, the extra toilet paper was living under the sink, but that’s also changed, thanks to a clearance vase at TJ Maxx.
(Is it wierd that my OCD is bugging me by looking at this picture because the rolls aren’t lined up straight? Just putting it out there). Not only is it functional and pretty, but its easily accessible and now we can tell when we need to restock in the bathroom.
My last little tip actually comes from my sister…when you have the smallest bathroom counter known to man, hang your hair dryer using a purse hook.
Seriously genius, people. Totally accessible and out of the way at the same time.
So there’s some bathroom storage for y’all. Any tips? Tricks? Anyone else use random furniture in their bathrooms? Oh, just me?….awkward.
I’m hoping to have the rest of these organization posts up by this weekend…fingers crossed!!
