Friday Fun – Bathroom shelves

I really like essential oils, and I really like nail polish (although ironically, I don’t wear it very often). I’m also space-challenged in my current place. And have I mentioned I like making, painting, crafting stuff? I decided I could find something that would help, so I went on the hunt.

One day while wandering around the web I saw some shelving ideas for holding oils, nail polish, and assorted odds and ends. These shelves from IKEA seemed to fit the bill perfectly:

IKEA shelves

Only $4 each!

I could have ordered them online, but my sister and I decided to have a day trip to our “local” IKEA, which is a few hours away. It was fun puttering around the store and I squealed when I found my shelves–for only $3.99!

Assembly was a snap. I planned on spray painting them, but our friend Rene from It’s All About the Cats kindly offered us some beautiful craft paint. I chose this shimmery pearl color. It’s soft and pretty and makes me so darn happy! Really, it’s the little things that make life good. 🙂

Last night my brother helped me hang the shelves, as I’ve never used screws and those plastic thingamabobbers that go into drywall. Now I know how! ::flexes:: As soon as they were up, I loaded up my nail polishes, oils, and face and hair products. I have so much more room in my linen closet now. And everything I use on a fairly often basis is organized and within easy reach. Love!
