I have been meaning to make over this small basement bathroom in my home for years. For some reason I painted it a dark maroon color about 10 years ago. The lighting was terrible, plus there was hardly any storage!
A few days ago, I knew my sister and family were coming for a much-anticipated stay and I had one of those spur-of-the-moment urges to make over that space. So I did!!
I headed over to Home Depot for some inspiration. And I found some awesome plank panels for the wall. Plus Martha Stewart’s line of organization products. I love all of the ideas you can use with the Martha Stewart line’s furniture. But I also love that you can take the fabric drawers and use them in your existing furniture and cabinets. And that is what I did in my basement bathroom. Plus, all of the fabric colors will match ANY decor!!
I bought the Martha Stewart Fabric Drawers in “Lagoon” to put under the sink. I labeled each container with the items that needed to be used in that bathroom.
That way if my daughter needs to access her curling iron or other hair appliances, she can just reach in and grab what she needs, or she can pull the whole drawer out and use what she needs and then stow it away under the sink.
Another thing that I think makes a small space so much efficient is utilizing the wall space. So I bought a couple of floating shelves at Home Depot. I hung them on the plank paneling and now I have a place to keep more items. And I found a pretty 3-pot flowerpot also at Home Depot. I put items my daughter uses in the pots — like Q-Tips, Cotton Balls and Makeup Applicators. I think the flower pot is pretty but I also love that it is functional too!
I am still hard at work on my bathroom redo, but I can tell you that the space now is so much more bright, pretty and organized than it ever has been!!
