We are always in need of storage space and we like to have things organized. So when we added these shelves I was so excited.

We had this open space over the toilet that I realized I could utilize. I can’t believe I didn’t think about it years ago, and it was so simple to convert into shelf space.

I know there are a lot of houses that have a little separate area for the toilet like our so I thought I would show how easy it was.
We held the boards in the places we wanted them and used a level. When it was level in both directions, we used a pencil to mark under the boards on both sides so we knew where to attach the corner round with a power nailer.

We cut, primed, and painted a board that we already had. (Which was nice. No money spent on this project)

We then just placed the boards on the corner round, and that was it.

Now we have a place to store towels and wash clothes which is neat and decorative.

We even found a wire basket, in the boys room, to hold our toilet paper.

This shelf in the corner is how we were storing extra towels.

With out the corner shelf also gives us more room.

Now we have these wonderful shelves over the toilet which is in a nook, to the left, next to the window.
It gives the room a cleaner and sharper look without the corner shelves.

  1. Great, cheap, easy project. Love it! I don't have a nook, but I have been thinking about adding shelves to our bathroom over the toilet for awhile now. Thanks for the inspiration. And thanks for stopping by my blog. My your newest follower. :)

    1. Katie,
      I hope you do! It adds much needed space to an unused area. Let me know how it turns out.

  3. I love the basket over the toilet. Do you know what the kind of basket is called or where I can get one. Thanks!

    1. I am glad you like the basket, but I have no idea where it is originally from. Sorry! I am sure I got it from a garage sale. I took it from one of my other rooms when I was doing this room.
