Last week, I shared my new DIY Towel Organizer for our master bathroom and today I have part 2 of that project. Even though this next project is actually for our half-bath downstairs the two pieces would work really well together in the same bathroom. So today, I’m revealing our new Rustic DIY Bathroom Shelving.
Earlier this year I revealed that my word of the year for 2014 is FINISH. I have SO many projects/rooms that I have been working on for the past few months and I am really determined to get them all done. These new bathroom shelves are one of the few projects I have left to complete our half-bath makeover. I am really enjoying how they turned out and they add a lot of character to the tiny space.
I kept the decor very minimalistic. I like crisp and clean spaces and didn’t want to add too much more for right now.
And the best part is, they are SUPER easy to make. I mean, I’m tell you ANYONE can do it.
They are so simple to put together and are actually pretty inexpensive.
- (2) Pieces of 20″ X 8″ Whitewood Planks
- (2) Packs of Black Shelving Brackets
- Minwax English Chestnut Stain
- Rustoleum Kona Stain
- Satin Polyurethane
I waited 24 hours for the stain to dry then did two coats of Minwax Satin polyurethane.
I knew I wanted Black Shelving Brackets and I ended up finding these at Target. Only $9.99 for both brackets!
When installing it to the wall, I tried to use the studs as much as possible. Due to the placement on my wall, I was only able to get one side secured to studs and the other into drywall. Just make sure you use the screws included in the kit.
I used very minimal decorations on the shelf. A tall candle from Target, books and a grapevine sphere that I already had on hand, vintage basket from Amazon and a picture frame from Target.
I can’t wait to show you the rest of the bathroom! I have a feeling there will be a reveal REAL SOON :)
