My last post on my master bathroom’s before and after was kinda lengthy, so I left out the details of this new cabinet. I already have a small closet that holds a ton of stuff in my bathroom, but I really needed a bit more storage for my little towels and miscellaneous items that get “lost” in that other closet. Purchasing an over-the-toilet etagere (fancy schmancy word and yes, I would like a croque madame with my etagere) is the perfect way of adding storage to bathrooms.
I started building this puppy at night, because I am patient like that. Hence the bad lighting.
It was pretty easy to put together and I didn’t need an assistant. Although my toddler kept saying “mommy, I’m a great helper” the whole time. He even brought over his toy drill.
The last step was anchoring it to the wall.
I really love the fact that it has doors, because let’s face it, it won’t always look this perfect! I will eventually add more stuff. I haven’t decided what I will store here and what will stay in the closet.
I found these little baskets at Target, on clearance. I am putting new travel-sized items in this one. Not toothbrushes and stuff, because this is on top of a toilet, and because that is gross, and because…well. Ya know.
The one on top has empty cosmetic bags, brushes…not quite everyday stuff but it can still be handy on top of the etagere ( I will now have a mimosa with my croque madame with my etagere).
Here is the side view.
This is a little idea that made a big difference in our bathroom.
Au revoir, et a la prochaine! (It means, goodbye, until next time, in french. I know this to be true because I just looked it up. Merci Wikipedia!)
