Bathroom storage can be a challenge.. Solving the problem can range from adding a wall cabinet -- to a total bathroom remodel. That's fine if you own your home. But what if you're renters like we are, and the only storage available is two drawers in the vanity?
When we moved into our apartment last July I liked our nicely fitted bathroom.
It's dressed up with beadboard.
It has a nice shower.
But there's that only-two-drawers-in-the-vanity thing. Definitely lacking storage in this bathroom.
Between the shower and the entrance door is an open space. We could have placed a chest there, except that's where the heater vent was installed and it needed to remain clear.
Fortunately, the heater is just above the baseboard with clearance on either side, so my very creative husband built a cupboard to fit the space and clear the heater .
He picked up the pine material at the lumber yard. The doors were made from shutters we found on clearance at a local shop; we paid $10 for the pair.
Interior shelves hold all our essentials and extra towels.
I chose to leave the wood natural, as it fits in with the light wood in the bathroom. When we move, the cabinet can be used in Dennis' studio or my workroom. We may decide to paint it at that time
This primitive cupboard is cute and joyful. It solved our storage problem inexpensively, and Dennis says it was fun to build.
