If you are at all faint of heart, I’m going to suggest that you look away now. I’m about to show you the scariest thing I’ve ever shared on this blog….unedited pictures of my bathroom.
I have the worldest smallest bathroom that in recent years has been overrun by bath toys, potty chairs, a stool and other clutter that was starting to drive me batty. So I headed out in search of a few cheap and easy storage solutions that would make the bathroom a little more liveable.
First, I grab a 2-pack of hooks from IKEA. I placed these at the far end of the tub (opposite the shower) for hanging wet towels on. No more towels draped over every surface in the bathroom.
Next, I needed a way to tackle the bath toys. I mounted a shower bar along the back of the shower to hold these great baskets I found at Fred Meyer ($1.50/each). The baskets are have wide openings so all the water drains out and the toys aren’t sitting in stale, yucky water. I used open shower curtain hooks to hang the baskets from the bar, which makes it easy to take them down at bathtime. I also added an extra hook for my sponge.
Lastly, I got a over the door hook from the dollar store and hooked it over the cupboard handle to hold my son’s potty seat.
All told, I probably spent about $15 on these easy solutions. Now I feel like everything in the bathroom has a place and most of the time, things even end up where they are suppose to.
