So, whether you're a seasoned crafter or just starting out, keep reading for a fun and creative bathroom counter organization idea.
1. Gather Materials
To start this project I grabbed three of these cute little craft storage bins that you'll find in the craft department of Dollar Tree.
I also picked up two, 12-inch wood slats while I was there.
2. Find the Angle
First, I took one of the bins and one of the wood slats and played around with them until I got the bin at an angle I liked. I wanted the bins to be at an angle but I also had to make sure the whole thing still stood right.
Once I found the angle I liked, I used a pencil to mark the edge so that I had the angle right when I went to adhere it.
3. Assemble the boxes
To adhere the first box in place, I added some hot glue to the slats.
Then, I used the guideline I had drawn to stick the box in place.
With the box in place, I used my staple gun to add a few staples on the inside to make sure it was reinforced.
Next, I was ready to add the second box so I followed the same process. I found the angle that I liked and then marked the box.
Then, I added the hot glue to stick the box in place.
Once the second box was in the right spot I used the staple gun to reinforce it.
I did the same thing to add the third box.
With all three boxes secured, It was time to move on and stain my new storage piece.
I used a foam brush to apply Rustic Wood Effects stain from Behr to give the whole piece a farmhouse look.
After the stain had time to completely dry, I added my fun new storage piece to the bathroom.
