About 5 years ago we decided to remodel our bathroom, best thing ever! We went from a tiny, tiny bathroom that you could litterly sit, shut the door & wash your hands all at the same time, to a very spacious bathroom with a large soaking tub!
I did have to sacrifice moving the laundry room to the basement but that was ok. Also with getting this grand tub it meant the shower would be separate, we used to have the tub/shower combo. That was all fine and dandy until I realized that I had no room to put all my shower necessities! I tried to persuade my husband to get a fancy shower with a built in shelf, but all he needs is soap and a 2 in 1 shampoo/conditioner and he good, lets just say he didn’t see the need for the shelf.
He doesn’t undstand what all goes on when a women takes a shower, I need my shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, face wash, face mask, body wash, body lotion, shaving cream and a razor at the very least! I suffered for years with the two tiny shelves that each held one bottle, a suction cup basket that fell down every other day and vast array of products scattered around the floor of the shower.
Then I decided to do something about it. Like most projects I do, I did it on a whim. So I set out to good old Menards and Wal-Mart (the only stores within 30 miles of my house) to find what I needed- a shower pole and some baskets.
I couldn’t quite find the baskets that I envisioned, so shower curtain hooks were also needed. I chose these baskets for two reasons 1) they are cheap, $2 and 2) they have holes to drain the water, however they are a little bit wider then I would have liked. One tip before heading out to the store…measure what size shower rod you need. Argh off the the store I go again.
Minor set back, because the end result was so worth it.
Look at how organized everything is! Now that I have had my shower like this for a while I am overall happy with the end result, I could get away with just two baskets (sometimes I bump into them) and I am going to invest in a curved shower rod to give you just a little more room.
Love Always … Tam
