Unique Bathroom Storage Ideas
Hi Everyone it’s been a while since I posted as most of you know we relocated and we have been busy trying to get this “fixer upper” house in order, while we are still busy getting some major projects done, I thought I would share a small project along with a room in our home that I have found to be quite challenging, that being the main bathroom with no cabinets. I needed to come up with some sort of cabinet along with decorative idea way to store our towels and other bathroom essentials.
I have always found it fun and challenging to use unexpected items for home decor. Creating an interesting unique piece that is functional and decorative is a win-win! It also makes a great conversation piece. As I mentioned this bathroom with no storage was quite the challenge. The best places I love to shop is thrift stores to find items that can be repurposed. I found this Martha Stewart stainless steel roll back bread box. I did have full of intentions of using as a bread box, but once I got it home realizing we always have a least 3 types of bread, it wasn’t going to serve the purpose of what it was intended. As I mentioned I like using the unexpected in unexpected ways, I decided it would make a great unique bathroom storage piece to store our wash clothes and a jar of Q-Tips.
An apothecary jar was filled with faux lavender to bring color into this all grey and white tiled bathroom to add color.
The nice thing was the price and I really didn’t have to do anything other than clean it up. I could have just folded up the wash cloths or left them loosely rolled up with the sprig of faux lavender, however as the old saying goes “presentation is every thing” right? I took a few of the rolled up wash cloths, added a sprig of lavender, tied up the three rolled cloths with silver string with a tear drop faux crystal for a little bling.
To solve the no cabinet issue, I had to find something narrow enough with shelving, it so happened my mom had this cabinet and was willing to give it up. It was a hunter green color, yes, she had this cabinet for a long time, Do you remember when the colors of hunter green and mauve were popular? Wow that quite a long time ago!. To bring it to the colors of the bathroom it was re finished in a Rust-oleum chalked Country Gray paint painted the Top was white washed while the rest of the cabinet was left in a solid grey and finished with a polyurethane.
The house projects have been slow going, but things are getting done little by little, one room at a time. The bathroom is not complete, I will share those ideas when I figure it out. Thank you for spending time here with me again. I can’t wait to share more with you soon.
