Storage in Small Half Bathroom

454,796 Views
We needed a space to store bathroom supplies, such as extra toilet paper, toothbrushes, & hair accessories in our tiny powder room. We used the space above the toilet to create floating shelves to hold all the necessities.
We began by making wooden braces & nailing them into the wall.
Then we cut some finished plywood for the shelves & my husband used a router to create the cap for the front of the shelves. Depending on how think you want the shelves, you could probably use a piece of trellis wood for the end.
Next, we installed the top & bottoms of the shelves by nailing them to the braces. Finally, we nailed the fronts to the shelves.
Floating shelves provide lots of storage in a tiny bathroom.

    Shelving turned out really nice and it is out of the way. No bumping and no splatters. ?-where are the tooth brushes and toilet paper?

    Thanks! The bottom shelf sits high enough that it doesn't get bumped or splattered on (I hope...my son does have pretty bad aim sometimes!). The toilet paper is in the basket on the top shelf. The toothbrushes & toothpaste are in the shell bowl on the 3rd shelf from the top. The old sewing basket on the bottom shelf holds eyeglass cleaner, brush, detangler, hair bands, & an extra roll of toilet paper. I like it that I can keep them all concealed pretty well!
