Using Shelves and Baskets to Organize your Bathroom Accessories

Do you have old baskets in the shed you are thinking about putting in the yard sale or garbage? Stop; you can redecorate the baskets. Redecorating the items is easy, which you can create an organizer for your bathroom. In addition, you can fill in 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 that you need to do something with in the bathroom and gear up that creative mind.

Of course, you will need to re-paint the shelves before creating your organizer. You can choose any type of paint, including flat paints. Spray the shelves, let dry, and spray paint the shelves again. If the wood is damaged, chipped, etc, you may need to sand 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 do you want to add something more to them. Remember don’t overdue it.

When choosing your colors and shades, be sure you already have a theme so they will match what is already done, you don’t want to waste your time. If you want 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 good and dry so now mount them on your wall where you want. I like to skater 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 go ahead and mount them.

Now you have created extra space and need to put something attractive on them. Remember again here 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 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 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 to plain; set 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 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 that nail care stuff you have in a bag in the cupboard.
