DIY: Bathroom Organization

This past weekend I visited my sister in Des Moines and we had a great time! It was a great sister weekend (minus one but she's enjoying Spain so she's not really missing out). On Friday night we went to a fun restaurant called Zombie Burger. It was awesome! The burgers and shakes were to die for (see what I did there? Zombies... to die for... ok yeah... I'm corny)! I tried the Dawn of the Dead burger with bacon egg and cheese on a burger and bun. Oooooh so delicious. And then after we dinner we each got a shake - wow. I ordered the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Shake which was vanilla ice cream, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and rum chata... whew, perfect. My sister ordered the Zombie Bride Cake Shake and that was also scrumptious. It was made with vanilla ice cream, yellow cake mix and cake vodka. Can you imagine just slurping cake batter? Because that's what it tasted like! I can't wait to try these at home AND maybe in a less fattening way?! Anyhow, to say the least I am a little jealous we don't have a Zombie Burger here in St Louis.

The good thing about me going out of town is that my wonderful husband finished a couple projects for me! I feel like we are finally getting to a point where our home is feeling less builder grade and a little more comfortable. Sometimes it is the little things that make a big difference! So what did my hubby do, you ask? Well, first he added shelving to our master closet. I needed this bad because my clothes were so jam packed, even after I donated a large amount.

Additionally, he hung a crate that I stained to store rolled towels. I purchased the unfinished crate at JoAnn's. I used a 50% off one item coupon so the crate was only $6! I used leftover stain to stain that crate and a few other items I plan to use for other projects (the list is never ending). The stain I use for these quick little projects is a poly stain which is a stain with a poly finish all in one. It is quick AND easy when completing these projects. Just a side note that it will get on your hands and will be sticky but within a day it will wash off. It turned out pretty nice I think! I am planning on also adding a smaller crate, also stained, below it for smaller cloths and/or toilet paper.

My husband also installed small pieces of PVC under my sink in the bathroom. I am using those pieces to hold my hair dryer and straightener. He also put an outlet under the sink as well. Basically, I can keep them plugged in and when I need them I open the door, use them, and then put them back. :)  It's handy for me but I convinced my husband also loves it because he hates when my hair dryer and/or straightener are left out on the sink counter.

 Love these organization projects! Makes me feel so much less stressed when things are easy and in order. What about you? Any Spring Cleaning/Organization happening in your home?

  1. doesn't the PVC pipe melt if the straightener is on, or do you only use it to store it not to hold it when it is on?

    1. Hi Jessica,

      I usually bring it up to the sink when I turn it on to use it. But I put it right back down under the sink on the pipe when I am done. It's usually still hot. But I don't know if you can tell by the pics or not but my hubby cut it short enough that it doesn't hit the iron part. The pipe is only long enough for the handle. :) I would definitely be worried about that if it wasn't cut short enough and I would not recommend keeping it on while hanging on the pipe.

      I hope that helps!

      Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you do the same in your bathroom. :)
