DIY Simple Bathroom Towel Caddy & Shelf

We have a problem. Well, a few problems. 1- Our bathroom is TEE tiny. 2- Everything we use on a daily basis sits on our tiny sink and it all falls into the sink. And it looks messy. And 3- Washcloths don't have a place and they end up on the floor. So I finally decided to do something about all these problems. Custom shelves!

If you missed our tiny bathroom renovation, check it out here first! It starts with our ceiling falling out- so it's a dramatic before and after!

For this project I am using 1x6 fence panels. You can use wood with a smaller width if you need to.
Wood Cuts To Make:
- 4 pieces of 10"x1"x6"
- 4 pieces of 26"x1"x6"
- 3 pieces of 14.5"x1"x3"
- 1 piece of 26"x1"x6"
- 1 piece of 26"x1"x3"

You will also need:
- 1 1/2 inch screws
- drill
- Hammer
- Finishing Nails
- Sander and/or Sand Paper
- Paint

To start, start the screws in each of the four corners on the long pieces. This makes it easier to put the shelf together by yourself.

 Then, line up the long piece with the end of a short piece and screw the nails in to secure.

 Repeat on all four corners and both long pieces until you have a rectangular shape.

Place one of the 1"x3" pieces inside the shelf and move it to the very top. Secure with screws from the outside pieces and the top piece. This will be the piece you use to hang the shelves.

Take one of the long pieces and place it on the front bottom of one of the shelves. This will create a deep caddy to hold things like dirty hand towels and wash cloth.

On the other shelf, place one of the 1"x3" pieces below the other, but flip it so it is "standing" up. This will create a little shelf for smaller things like contact cases, glasses, retainers, etc... Again, secure with screws from the outside.

Sand all edges and sides before painting.

The paint will make everything look amazing!

I even went as far as caulking the creases to make it look even nicer.

To hang, drill two holes through through the inside piece where there are studs on your wall. If you can't find the studs, or they aren't in a place where the shelf overlaps, you can use dry wall screws. I attached one side of the shelf to the wall, placed a level on top and made sure the entire thing was level, and then screwed in the other screw.

We are so pleased with the results! Our makeup eraser towels and wash cloths have a home. Our Clarisonic and electric toothbrushes are ready to be used everyday, but there is also a space for them to charge. Our glasses and Smilelove retainers are right by the sink where they need to be, but not ON the sink. Hallelujah!! If you make a shelf like this, share it with us over on on Instagram!
