My bathroom needed something other than just a silly towel rack, am I right?
So why not add some extra storage!
These shelves were super easy to do and change the entire look of this wall!
look at this before of our bathroom …
When my husband and I first looked at this house this is what we walked into. Although it was very outdated I saw a lot of potential in this house we now call home.
SO the deal was with the previous owner that we could pick everything out for this bathroom, and they would do the remodel and finish it before we moved it. Great deal right? Well that wasn’t really how it went, so we just took what we could get.
This bathroom is far from my idea of the potential it could have and even farther from my idea of a dream bathroom. But we are making it work.
These shelves have added extra storage in our tiny master bathroom and allowed us to free up a ton of space on our bathroom countertop.
So get to the point!
This cost less than $75!
However I did already have the stain.. but still great DIY!
Here is what I did
I ACTUALLY MEASURED THIS SPACE!
if you read my post about my Trellis , you may know I’m not the best at taking pre measurements.
so I knew I needed somethinghing less than 23 in to fit over the toilet and make it look like it wasn’t overbearing for that space.
1x8x6 commonboard from Homdepot
along with four 8in metal brackets
THAT IS IT!
I cut my board to 21in twice to make 2 shelves just to be safe
I stained them with Carbon Gray stain (also from homedeopt) that I already had lingering in my garage.
Once they were dry my Step Dad came over to help find studs and screw the metal brackets to the wall ( I could’ve done this myself however when he is over I always put him to work.. Sorry JOEY!)
And that was all!
I also want to mention a few items on these shelves.
Maleys B-Flat cream is a cream I have been using for a few month now, YES IT WORKS!
recently partnering with Maleys they sent me a few other products to try as well.
The “Bright”cream for dark circles because mom life..
The “B-Perky” cream because mom boobs… haha
+ my favorite out of the 3 so far (aside from B-Flat) is the “B-Tight” I have actually been using the “B-Tight” cream on my mom pooch and I am seeing results and it has only been a week!
