I have a small bathroom problem. We recently finished our basement and we really didn’t have much choice with the bathroom. We were left with a narrow and kind of long bathroom. I wanted to put some shelves over the toilet to store a few things. I searched around a bit and everything just seemed overpriced. I set out to create them myself! Now diy projects do not come easy to me. I am forcing myself to be creative and crafty. I envy those that have it naturally!!
First we went to Menards and picked up some 2×6 boards. My hubby cut them down to the size I wanted and then I went to work distressing them a bit. Basically I just pounded them with a hammer. I wanted the boards to look old. My hubby used his power sander on them when I was done distressing. I put a few coats of stain on(I used Minwax Dark Walnut) and then finished up with a protective finish. The hardest part is waiting between all of the coats. Seriously all of these projects would be easier if we didn’t have to wait so long!!:)
I went searching for some decorative shelf brackets and had a hard time finding a size small enough. I checked both Menards and Home Depot and didn’t have any luck. I finally went online and found these. They worked perfect!
My hubby did the hanging because I am not good at getting things level. I think they turned out pretty good!!
Add a few things on the shelves and finished!
