Three months after camouflaging my bathroom walls. I have finally started adding some wall decor.
Ana White via YHL shared plans for floating shelves that could easily be customized. I have some skills gleaned from decades of watching home improvement shows, but me best asset is a Father-in-law who has hands on experience, a plethora of tools at his disposal, and seems to enjoy me sharing blueprints with him!
He built them per Anna's excellent plans and customized to my designated length/width. I even got him to help with installation! One side was securely fastened to a stud and the other with a wall anchor. Preferably they would have both been fastened to studs, but with most home improvements, you work with what you've got.
After he installed the boards, I primed and painted the shelves that slipped over the boards.
I am glad too have some storage space again. I don't need a lot in this bathroom, so the baskets teamed with the open shelving works for us.
I'm still on the lookout for a cute way to hang the girls hooded towels and one more piece of art and a way to add some fun color.
I started with the yellow showed curtain, but found some dark pink hand towels at a couldn't be beat price. (They paid me to buy them) so now I'm thinking I'll embrace more of a kid friendly rainbow of colors hey it's their bathroom mainly so why not?
