{Creative} Bathroom Storage

I have had this lovely towel rack for a few years, but I can never keep towels in it and when I do they stay for too long and look dusty and flat.  So after a few months of staring at it’s emptiness, I came up with an alternative use for it.

Over the toilet storage.

First things first.  Eat your oatmeal.  It is good for you.

I saved the oatmeal containers.  At least the ones Mr. Husband didn’t dispose of.  Next I covered them in scraps of fabric and burlap using spray adhesive and hot glue for the edges.  I just put the hot glue along the edge and folded in the fabric.


There ya have it.  I might make one more big one & two smaller ones…we’ll see.  But for now it already feels a little nicer and more organize in our little komodo.

This way we can have air freshener, feminine products, etc. with in reach with out them sitting on the back of the toilet.  They simply slide in the open side, out of sight, but with easy accessibility.  Not that many guest frequent my master bath, but it feels nice to walk past and have it look a little put together.


*The pictures show the colors coming through the burlap, but in real life they don’t show.  You could spray paint the containers first or use a lining or thicker fabric.*

I know you all might not have towel racks like this hanging around, but I am hoping this with at least get your creative juices flowing for reusing what you have in maybe a different way as well as recycling stuff we use everyday.
