DIY Toothbrush Holder and Matching Soap Dispenser

4 Materials
2 Hours

We have a bathroom in the basement of our house. And it has never really gotten much love or attention. It is a backup, to be used only as a last resort and therefore it has been easy to ignore. But recently we have decided to give it at least some attention. We are planning to paint and tile and fix the icky shower.

But first I am decorating it. Now I know that is completely backwards but what can I say? I really only like to do the fun stuff and if I have the decorations part done then maybe that will lead to some actual renovations. Keeping fingers crossed.

As you may or may not know every good bathroom remodel needs a theme. Alright, I admit that isn't even true but since I have a theme for my bathroom remodel I just wanted to say that. My statement is even more ironic if you factor in that I use mostly trash and recycled items for my projects, so the word good might be generous or at least subjective.

But onward, my theme, because I know you are curious is................

not a zoo theme,
diy toothbrush holder and matching soap dispenser
or a wild animal theme,
diy toothbrush holder and matching soap dispenser
or what ever that makes you think of.

The theme of course is Silver Safari!

Now you may be wondering where in the world a theme like that might come from and all I can say is it comes from the trash and I mean that litter-ally. I didn't even think of that little pun until I was actually typing it. Sometimes I crack myself up.

Anyway, this post is honestly one of my less trashy projects. Other projects in this bathroom redo include a shower curtain made from food wrappers, a chandelier lamp shade also from food wrappers and recycled glass and lets not forget about the Cheeto's bags made into wall art. :-)

You may think that I am kidding but I assure you I am not. Trash is kind of my thing. And trust me I know just how classy that sounds.
Happy Upcycling!
