Our toilet paper holder came out of the wall, leaving a huge hole. I was so bummed. I had been looking at newer toilet paper holders, with one wall mount, so I saw this as a great DIY update opportunity. I wanted something that would fit our farmhouse decor and I needed something that would cover the hole. This is what we came up with.
Necessity is the mother of invention. The colors of our granite countertops make it impossible for me to see my rings or small jewelry lying on top of them. And I have actually knocked my wedding rings into the trashcan before. It was because I couldn’t see them on the counter without wearing my glasses. I really needed bathroom canisters and jewelry holders for my bathroom. Now my second dilemma is to maintain an uncluttered countertop. Click the video to see how to make yours.
I rent. I want that known. So not all in my home is my fault, but I'm trying to make it better, but I don't want to spend a fortune on a home that isn't MINE. Aren't we all? A friend of mine gave me some chairs with broken legs. Whilst in the shower - I had an epiphany!
When we remodeled our main bathroom, storage was at the top of our need/want list. We decided to pack extra storage into every nook and cranny in this bathroom. The old bathroom pre-remodel had 96 inches of countertop with two sinks and eight doors underneath. Who needs 96 INCHES of countertop? And the storage underneath was a nightmare to organize - Not practical.
We decided that drawers were what we needed in the new bath. We searched high and low for bath vanities with drawers. Most offer two drawers, but a fake top drawer and the bottom drawer is cut out around the plumbing so you don't even get a full drawer. We kept coming back to the IKEA Rattviken vanity. It had two full drawers that were lined and compartmentalized. And the price with countertop was only $409 each.
We updated and customized the vanities with this Young House Love campaign hardware available at Home Depot. We added a vintage secretary piece of furniture in between the vanities and it added storage for guest towels on top, a pull down countertop for the times you need additional counter space and THREE MORE DRAWERS. We painted it Sherwin Williams Intellectual Gray and highlighted with gold. ...
Need more shower storage? I definitely did! There's nothing worse than trying to get clean while bottles and soap containers are falling on your toes. Instead of adding shelves or making a more permenant (read: expesnvie) change to my shower, I came up with a simple solution! I used a tension rod, shower baskets, and some curtain hooks to create more shower space. It's simple and space saving.
I had an idea to add a little bit of extra storage space in our little bathroom. I've seen many lovely barn doors made here and wanted to try it despite my limited talents with tools.

I haven't posted in a little while and I'm excited to show my latest project! We recently switched bedrooms for our daughter Olivia from upstairs to our first floor second bedroom and Olivia wanted a new theme ( you can see some of her first bedroom makeover that I did in my projects). This time she wanted an " enchanted forest" which is my favorite because I really love trees..
I found this gem on the side of the road. Yes it wasn’t pretty but definitely had potential. It was missing a side rail. Easy fix right? And of course I can just take my sawz-all to the ratten seat and replace it. I loaded it up and left it for a couple of months. It has been rained on numerous times. I even thought about throwing it away a couple of times. FINALLY I got off my rear and went to town on it. I cleaned it up with some vinegar and wiped it down really good. I left it to dry a few hours and took my hand sander and used 120 grit to sand off the rough spots and help paint adhere to it. It was black and I thought I probably need to use primer. I didn’t though. After sanding I measured where the side bar was gone and replaced it. You can see it in the photo below. All is used was my jig saw to cut the piece and a few wood screws to make it stay in place.
I have seen a lot of solutions for what to do with those pesky plastic shopping bags that can be useful but difficult to store. My girlfriend showed me a solution that has revolutionized my life...

But here is my solution to storing them and a couple of ideas of how I use them
