Bathroom Closet - Ugly to Organized

I'm in an organizing/cleaning frenzy right now and when it came to my ugly bathroom closet, I was taking no prisoners!
 I got lots of inspiration on Pinterest for solving some of the "issues" in MY closet.  But there was one issue unique to my closet and that was a weird, unfinished "laundry chute" in the floor.  Now there's still no "chute" but this idea came to me in the middle of the night. (Please tell me SOMEONE else out there has messy closets like this one??)

I got a piece of flat wood, a cupboard door, a knob and some hinges at the local ReStore for just a few dollars.  Using Liquid Nails, I glued the stripping to form a base/frame on the tile floor for the door.  My next "problem" was this odd, little, useless ledge on one side of the closet.  I decided to add a shelf piece to it to make it useful for more storage.
There was a bunch of wasted space at the top of this closet so I added a fourth shelf to store blankets, pillows, etc.
I saw this cute idea for dividing a shelf using a corbel which I bought, painted and attached to the towel shelf.
The hanging shelves are great for wash cloths and hand towels.  Everything got a nice label and I even treated myself to new towels.  My whole bathroom is going to get a makeover using this deep plum, gray and pale blue color scheme.  My final "problem" was a place to keep my hair dryer, flat iron, etc.
Lots of 'problems' solved and now I smile every time I have to throw dirty laundry down to the laundry room.



  1. You've been on a to speak! And everything looks so clean and fresh now. I need to do this very thing when we get back to Florida. I need to get brutal and get rid of some stuff! lol Hugs!

  2. Oh, so many great ideas in here. I really like how you attached the ire basket to the wall for your blow dryer and curling iron. As well, the addition of COLOR in there really livens it up too. Great job. I'm sure it's a relief to have it in such beautiful condition.
