IKEA TRONES in the Bathroom

Think these shoe storage bins only belong in the entryway, think again. At an exceptionally shallow depth, they also work wonders in a small bathroom that can’t spare a storage footprint.

These two wall-mounted bins store hair tools {hairdryer, curling iron, products} on top and bathroom supplies {Magic Erasers, cleaning spray and toilet paper} on bottom.

Entryway Project with IKEA Trones

image

Installing these lightweight, low-profile shoe storage units from IKEA might be the easiest project I have ever undertaken. They each hang on two screws installed with drywall anchors, and are so slim (6.5 inches deep) that we can actually open the front door almost completely. Now we have space for shoes plus a place to hide shopping bags. Next up, coathooks! One step at a time.

Tension Rod Herb Garden using IKEA FINTORP Cutlery Pots

This project is exactly what it sounds like, and requires no tools! Yay! All you need is:

A tension rod

IKEA FINTORP cutlery caddies (which have drainage plates already

A package of hooks for that system

Some plants

Then you put them all together in your window, see? So easy. This was extra easy for me because I have a lot of tension  rods lying around from when I had curtains instead of roller shades. They were a little too expensive to throw out, so I had them all in the shed just waiting patiently! Another great use for one ended up putting it under the sink to hang spray bottles.

IMG_0806As an added bonus my plants are mostly out of reach from the cats. Since these herbs (cilantro, sage, and orange thyme) are all technically pet-safe and non-toxic it isn’t the most important thing, except for of course I would like there to be a few herbs left for me! I previously had a greenhouse in this window to protect them as babies, which is going bye-bye so I can turn this shelf into a 2-seater bar! Until next time…
