Some of us have them, and some of us (like me) don't
When we moved into our house we knew we wanted to redo either the kitchen or the bathroom. We decided to go with the kitchen since we'd get a lot more use out of it. Since we've only lived here 3 years we haven't been able to much with the bathroom.
I've mentioned it a few times on my blog but have never really shown it; mainly because it's kind of embrassing. I don't even show it to people who come over to the house. But, here it is in all it's 70's retro glory.
So there it is. Now you know the truth- our "Master Bath" is not only incredibly small it's also pretty ugly.
Since we don't have the time or money for a full reno and with our house on the market it was time to make something out of nothing and make the space a little more liveable. I focused on this space behind the toilet- (affectionately known as the "Pit of Despair")
To make this space more functional I decided to create some shelves to hold towels and bathroom necessities. The space (or hole however you want to put it) already had these tracks and shelf mounts in it. What happened to the original shelves, I have no clue.
So I went to Home Depot and bought a piece of plexiglass for about $9. I measured the space and measured and cut the pieces to size with a plexiglass cutter.
Not a perfect cut but it works... with everything installed it looks pretty good.
So with little money and minimal effort I now have a functional space to keep towels, soap, ect. I don't know why I hadn't done this before!
Have you ever had a project you put off, but were so happy when you finally finished it? Do you have an element, room, area of your home you're not particularly keen on?
