My hall bathroom makeover is almost done, but I really wanted something to go on the top of the toilet tank. You know, something that was flat and you could sit things on. This is a small bathroom and the vanity isn't really very big, so there isn't a ton of room for accessories.
I need all the space in here that I can find, so the top of the tank is space I need to use, but see all those curves, it's hard to sit something on the tank and not have it slide around. A shelf is what I needed.
I found this piece of wood at Michaels that is just the right size, so I am going to embellish it a bit.
First a coat of white spray paint. (Yes, my lawn is looking really bad with all this hot weather.) Here's a tutorial of how I did mine.
When your piece is thoroughly dry,you need to sand it down lightly and then steel wool it for a really smooth finish.
Be sure to countersink your knobs. You want the back to be totally flat.
