I was about to throw away this inexpensive toothbrush holder (from IKEA) while cleaning my bathroom, when I got the idea. I'm always looking for items to use as a base on repurposed projects and thought this was perfect for a quick project. Inspiration and ideas can be found anytime, anywhere... even while cleaning your bathroom.
