Easy Bathroom Shelves

I'm one of those weirdo girls that would rather buy home decor than shoes or new clothes.  When I buy some small piece of decor, every time I walk by it I feel happy.  These new shelves that my hubby helped me hang up put a smile on my face whenever I walk into the room.  They were so easy too!





To make these shelves you'll need:
-a 1x7" board
-Minwax Dark Walnut Stain
-Polyurethane
-Shelf brackets (like the ones I found HERE on Amazon)
-dry wall anchors 

First, I figured out how long I wanted my shelves to be.  Mine are about 25 1/2 inches long.  I wanted them to be just slightly longer than the toilet.  I had hubby cut them to the appropriate length.  Next, it was time to stain.  I love staining wood.  It's like magic.  One minute it is plain boring wood and the next it is beautifully rustic wood.  I used Minwax Dark Walnut Stain.  Once my stain was dry I used Polyurethane to seal it.



I bought my shelf brackets on Amazon because I'm a homebody and Amazon Prime is like the best thing ever for hermits like me.  It's like the ice cream man every time the UPS truck comes down our street.  I loved that these brackets already came with screws too!   Hubby put in the dry wall anchors first and then screwed in the brackets.  He assured me that with those anchors I could put my heavy glass jar things up without worrying about the shelves falling down.  It is pretty dang sturdy.



I have to say my most favorite thing on our shelves is my cute hand soap from World Market.  I'll never buy dollar store soap again.  For real, it's all in the details!


My little Hawaiian Tikis are special to me too.  Hawaii is our happy place.  My husband bought the big tiki when he lived in Hawaii for two years on a mission and I bought the little tiki when I went to Hawaii for the first time before I met him.  Now that we are married, it's fun to put our two little tikis together on the shelf!


What's great about these shelves too is that I now have more space to put things in my tiny bathroom!


This may be my favorite home project so far!  I can't wait to show you what else I have planned for this little bathroom! 
I'd love for you to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest!
