Even though our main floor powder room is technically our guest bathroom, I still do my hair and makeup here so that I can be close to my young kids while I get ready. I have a lot of personal supplies that need to be stored here, so I’ve used some techniques to make everything fit in this 5 foot by 5 foot space.

First of all, I’ve used vertical storage. Hanging shelves on the wall above the toilet gives me space on the wall when there’s not much floor space. I’ve also hung a container on the back of the vanity door for vertical storage space for my styling tools.

Secondly, I’ve used lots of baskets and containers to store all of our random items. I have pretty sisal baskets on our open shelves, and I have some trays and bins in the vanity to corral more items.

Finally, we’ve installed a closed vanity in this space. As much as I love the look of vanities with open bottoms, the closed vanity with doors and a drawer was vital here so that we could store more things.

  1. Love the wallpaper. What a fantastic fit to your DIY country home. I’ve always been scared of wallpaper since having the job of peeling it off once as a child with my mom. It had been on for thirty years and was horrible! Anyways, I’d be more inclined to watch a thrifty Thursday clip since my kids are grown up (in school all day) and I don’t do too many crafty things with them anymore unless it’s a sports free weekend! Xo take care

  2. Good video! Love the wallpaper. I would probably watch the ‘Thrifty Thursdays’, before your other idea.
