Closet Makeover — Bathroom
We have lived in the Blue Cottage now for 1 1/2 years, and we are slowly making it our dream home.
This house is small — we don’t have a basement or a garage, not even a shed yet. But thankfully we do have a lot of closet space.
Which means they are usually filled with a lot of things.
I like being organized, and our upstairs bathroom closet needed help.

One sink for the three of us, but we don’t mind. We also have the downstairs powder room.
It didn’t look like this in the beginning, but this is what the inside of the closet looked like yesterday. Ugh.
The “before”: mismatched boxes, and sheets and pillowcases just stuffed into the closet.
You can buy [easyazon_link identifier=”B001687MY2″ locale=”US” nf=”y” tag=”dagmarblecom-20″ cart=”n” cloak=”y” popups=”n”]similar paper storage boxes on Amazon[/easyazon_link].
So yesterday I got to work and put the boxes together. It takes a little while because they are held together by small screws.
Then I took out everything that was in the closet, decided which linens and towels had seen better days to give to our local animal shelter, and decluttered the boxes that were in the closet.
They were filled with extra toiletries and first aid remedies.
I then used a credit I had at KMart to buy a few new fluffy [easyazon_link identifier=”B00GEFSCIM” locale=”US” nf=”y” tag=”dagmarblecom-20″ cart=”n” cloak=”y” popups=”n”]towels[/easyazon_link] and was ready to transform this closet.
It only took me about 10 minutes to make it look like this. Ta-da!! Welcome to my organized bathroom closet makeover.
I use a [easyazon_link identifier=”B000FCEP9K” locale=”US” nf=”y” tag=”dagmarblecom-20″ cart=”n” cloak=”y” popups=”n”]Command hook[/easyazon_link] on the inside of the closet to hang up some of my necklaces.
I love those so much better than other hooks – no drilling required, you just stick them on, and if I ever change my mind, I can easily remove it, without removing any paint.
Aside from the white boxes, I wanted to include [easyazon_link identifier=”B003VV2DQY” locale=”US” nf=”y” tag=”dagmarblecom-20″ cart=”n” cloak=”y” popups=”n”]baskets[/easyazon_link] in the makeover because they add the cozy cottage charm.
I remembered that I had bought two large baskets at a tag sale months ago. They might have even been freebies. I cleaned up one of them, put it on the floor in the closet, and it’s perfect for large towels and blankets.
Next: I added a [easyazon_link identifier=”B00NHWJKBI” locale=”US” nf=”y” tag=”dagmarblecom-20″ cart=”n” cloak=”y” popups=”n”]vintage picnic basket[/easyazon_link] I also bought at a tag sale weeks ago to one of the shelves. Here is the post about that basket.
Can you guess what it is disguising? Rolls of toilet paper.
I do like how the rolls peak out of the baskets in our laundry closet, but I didn’t want them showing in this closet.
Aaah, an organized life is a more relaxed life.
This was a couple of hours of work in all, but so worth it. Now I’ll be moving on to the next closet.
What do you think? What would you have done differently?
Pin this for later! And check out how I made over our coat closet makeover.
