For extra storage, a toiletry and magazine rack was made from a reclaimed shipping pallet. To create the rack, a measuring tape was used to determine the proper width of the wall, then the pallet was dismantled with a crowbar, cut to size and mitered using a chop saw, then reconfigured and attached using the original nails. Black steel pipe is mounted to the bottom to keep towels neatly hung.
A fun addition to this timeless bathroom is the custom mirror above a large trough sink. It provides a shelf for toiletries and has two cut outs for old-fashioned Mason jars that are perfect places to store toothbrushes.
Mason jars are a pretty and practical solution for organizing cotton balls and Q-tips, but glass in the bathroom is a risky matter and counter space is always at a premium. Here's a solution for getting everything up on the wall in style. All you need is a piece of wood, paint, pipe clamps, wide-mouth Mason jars, screws and picture hangers. Paint your wood board the color you want. Once it's dry, screw the pipe clamps onto the wood (be sure to measure out how many Mason jars you'll be adding and space them out on the board). Add picture hangers to the back of the board to hang it on the wall. Then, slide the Mason jars into the pipe clamps. Be sure the pipe clamps are tight enough to catch the lip of the jar. Now you have all your essentials within reach, and they look good, too. Design by Liz Marie Galvan
