So, a couple of days ago, I was yammering about spring cleaning……well, I guess I’m on a roll. I swear that I’m not a nesting pregnant woman! It is just the typical time of year for me to be seeking some change and some order in my life and home.
I have one of those awesome bathrooms without any medicine cabinets. I appreciate the clean lines….but, seriously? I really don’t want to be doing squats and knee bends every time I need some hair product or face cream! In the past, I have thought up some creative solutions for solving my little problem…..using some silver platters along with a candlestick and some museum wax.
If that inspires you, check out the simple how-to.
This has worked nicely for a while, but now I am totally jonesing for some counter-space! Fortunately, I had a small crate handy….now for some screws and a drill!
Once I leveled it off, I placed two screws underneath the crate to give it some leverage and strength as a shelf.
Now, using a level for the second time, it is time to screw my crate into place. I just rested the crate on the screws in the wall, double checked that things were level annnnddd…..screw it in!
Definitely practical, but I decided to add a little flare.
I am totally happy with how this thrifty little project turned out….and I’m TOTALLY loving the counterspace!!
