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.
My daughter-in-law Ann Marie help in the arranging of the shelves.
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.
You could see how we keep our bathroom organized here.
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.
Do you have a spot where you could add some shelves?
How do you like ours?
