We are blessed to have 2 full bathrooms in our home; one on each level. Since the kids are downstairs most of the day, and therefore so are we, the main bathroom is the downstairs one. The problem? The downstairs bathroom is tiny and has very little storage.
This vanity looks innocent enough, right?
Beware opening it. This is where we have all of our towels and facecloths stored. Why are some on the floor? That’s where they fell when I opened the doors.
Did I say “all of our towels?” I meant almost all of them. Some of them don’t fit, so they’re sitting on the back of the toilet, just waiting for young toddlers to pull them into the toilet. Yes, it’s happened. The toilet was also filled with a full roll of toilet paper and several other bathroom items. But I digress.
We do have some shelves, as you can see, but they’re very unorganized. Basically, our storage motto is “the more chemicals it has (or messier it is), the higher it goes.” Not a bad motto, but it’s a bit incomplete. Especially since 90% of the items taking up our precious storage are only used 5% of the time..if that. Why? Because really, I have no idea what’s up there.
So, off to Pinterest I went, looking up Bathroom Storage. A few ideas and a lot of motivation later, this is what I ended up with.
Now, we’ll see how long it stays this nice!
