Simple DIY Wooden Crate Shelf For Our Guest Bathroom

4 Materials
$40
2 Hours
Easy

I wanted a small shelf for extra storage in our guest bathroom and I just wasn't finding

an option that seemed to work. I needed something that wasn't very deep and it seemed like

everything I liked was just not the size I wanted.


When I came across wooden crates I stacked them in the store and took a photo and

decided to think about it.

I decided to try the wood crates and ended up picking them up the next time I went to the store.


I placed them in the space to get a visual, and I really liked it so I got to work and ordered some wood bun feet that I found online.

When those arrived I simply used Gorilla Wood glue to glue the crates together as well as add the bun feet.

When the glue had dried, I went ahead and painted the piece white.

After the paint had dried thoroughly I placed it in the space and loaded it up.

It fit perfectly in this space for what I was wanting, and overall

I am really happy with how it turned out.

    I found out by experience that anytime i have used a wood product in my bathroom, within a few months it warps. I think it's the steam from showers, hot baths, etc... so my preference is still metal shelves.

      Yes, that's what i'm sure is the problem. I didn't seal them, but painted with chalk paint. I'll have to use the polycrylic then.

    Great idea! Here’s what I have in my bathroom for anyone wanting wall storage ideas. (It’s laundry day, so they are pretty empty! But I put washcloths & hand towels on top & bath towels on the bottom!)
