Updated Storage For The Bathroom

Our bathroom is really builder basic.  No storage at all behind those doors, so I have been trying to be creative and find things that work.

While browsing Ross and looking for hangers to use for the closet makeover, I saw these two drawer shelf units.  Perfect for what I needed.

This is our vanity.  I love that it has two sinks and enough counter space for both of us, however behind those doors is nothing.

 This side is mine and the older I get the more "paint", "putty" and "spackle" I need.

I found these little plastic drawers at Target years ago and they work perfectly for my makeup.

But that mess on the right is not working at all.  I need something that can accomodate some taller things.

This is the perfect answer.  Both are drawers that pull out so I can reach all the things in the back.

The bottom one holds misc. things for hair color, nails and and cleansing.

The top one is perfect for all my hair "stuff", and a big bottle of lotion.

So much better don't you think?

What kind of creative storage solutions have you found?

  1. I truly think most of us could use storage such as that. Well done, Marty. It looks awesome. I may have to get something like that for hubs' side. HE, being a guy has all the bathroom cleaners on his side. Heh. No room on my spackle putty side. That was cute and I sure wish I didn't understand it. HAHA! Have a fabulous weekend.

    Been crazy busy and no time for posting. Once this week is over I will be back with a happy vengeance! Hugs!

  2. You've done a great job of utilizing the space you have, Marty. I think this is the first time ever that I do have adequate/plentiful bathroom storage and I'm so thankful.

  3. Super! You have really given me some good ideas. I will continue to nab all your great ideas.

  4. That is a perfect solution and organizing tool, Marty! I have something similar in our kitchen under the sink cabinet and don't know why I never thought of using something like it in the bathroom. It would work perfectly for all those things I store under there. Great tip!

  5. Perfect. I am a stickler for organization in my bath. I hate when i cant find one things quickly

  6. Love your organizational tips. I have a concern for the under counter drawers. Does the whole unit ever pull out when you are trying to pull out just one drawer?
