Using Shelves and Baskets to Organize Your Bathroom Accessories

Do you have old baskets in the shed that you are thinking about putting in the yard sale or throwing away? Stop; you can redecorate the baskets. Redecorating the items is easy, and you can create an organizer for your bathroom. Additionally, you can utilize wasted space, giving you more room to store other bathroom items in your cabinets.

Did you put some old shelves in the yard sale? Did the items sell, or do you still have them? If you still have the items, pick a wall in the bathroom that you need to do something with and gear up your creative mind.

Of course, you will need to repaint the shelves before creating your organizer. You can choose any type of paint, including flat paints. Spray the shelves, let them dry, and spray paint them again. If the wood is damaged or chipped, you may need to sand it first.

Enamel, ceramic, or whatever paint you may have under the cupboard will work for this. After the shelves are dry, give them a good look over and decide if they are too plain or if you want to add something more to them. Remember not to overdo it.

When choosing your colors and shades, be sure you already have a theme so they will match what has already been done. You don’t want to waste your time. If you want to add more color to your shelves, use another color and stamp or even draw a design on it, painting it to your desired color.

The shelves are dry, so now mount them on your wall where you want. I like to stagger them so they aren’t all in a row. A lot depends on how much room you want to use for this project. Once you have decided on the area and the order you want to mount them, go ahead and mount them.

Now you have created extra space and need to put something attractive on them. Remember, again, you need to be creative. Using baskets can be fun. Baskets come in many different sizes, shapes, and colors, so set them on the shelves, placing the sizes and shapes wherever you like. We have the baskets picked out that we’re going to use, so be creative again and decorate them. Baskets are nice to use because they are easy to clean. Just wash them with warm soapy water and let them dry. The moisture in the bathroom is good for them; it helps keep them from drying out.

Don’t like the color of these old baskets? Let’s decorate them now. You can paint baskets and decorate them just like you did your shelves. Go ahead, the paint won’t hurt, and when finished, just get the clear color spray can out and spray them to set the colors in. Got the baskets painted and they are too plain? Set them back onto the shelves and see where and what you want to add to them next. You can stamp and put stickers on baskets too, just like you did with your shelves, so think and be creative with them. Make your wall something for people to talk about and be proud of all the hard work you’ve done with your time.

The shelves and baskets are done now, so what are you going to do with the baskets? Don’t worry; you can fill the baskets with a variety of items to clear up space in your cabinets. Use one of your newly decorated baskets for all the nail care stuff you have in a bag in the cupboard.
