This summer was the queen of makeovers at my place. I was determined to have everything finished and looking great! With all the decluttering and donating going on, it was only necessary to give the place a full on makeover. The bathroom has been a spot I wanted to really just get organized and I did do just that last year. However, it didn't really stick because we (aka my mom) never went through the stuff to see what we don't use, don't need and that is just garbage. Instead, we have been taking all the things with us from each place we moved too.
However not anymore, we went through everything, filled up a garbage bag full of things and now the bathroom is even better than the last time I organized.
Eeek! It doesn't look as great as I thought it did. The mix match storage containers hid so many things that we couldn't see what was in there most of the time and it made the space feel dark and small. Also, having the dryer and irons in the storage container wasn't ideal. The dryers and irons were taller than the storage containers and it was sticking out. With a few changes it, and a plan set, it turned out way better!
This organization is a way better set up from the last. It feels airy and open as well as more balanced. These blue storage containers are half the size and only cost me $2.00 at dollarama. I saw these contiainers online on some of my favourite blogger's sites and wish I had it. It was like Dollarama read my mind because a year later, the exsact ones were there and way less the cost of what I have seen others play. What I love most about these containers is that it works great for seeing what we need without looking cluttered.
My mom bought a tray from Dollarma a while ago and the handle cracked so I tooked it and used it for the third shelf. Once I added the tray, I was able to arrage the smaller storage containers. One for brushes and combs (I got from working for Avon) as well as one for clips and ponytails.
The fourth shelf is for the hamper. Leaving the hamper in the middle with nothing else near it, gives the shelf a larger feel to it and it looks cleaner as well.
I love how everything turned out!
