The larger drawer wasn't TOO bad, but it needed to be cleaned out a bit. I have the left side and the middle section. My husband has the right. In this drawer I keep my hair products and tools, some lotions and a few miscellaneous things. In the center I keep my daily face products and deodorant. My husband keeps razors, cologne, hair gel, shaving cream and deodorant in his side.
We keep tooth care items in the small left drawer.
I was keeping most of my makeup in the small right drawer, but it was a disaster to say the least. I could never find anything and my poor brushes were being destroyed. Oh, the horror!
So I purchased some acrylic cosmetic containers at Bed Bath & Beyond. I went through everything and got rid of outdated and broken makeup.
The only place the containers were going to fit was on a shelf on the etagere. I purchased this one from Bed Bath & Beyond a little over two years ago. Here's how it ended up when I put everything back.
Here are some close ups of the containers.
I really love it so much more than when it was in that tiny drawer! I can actually see all of my makeup now. It's obviously so much easier to find things and since it's organized so nicely, I don't mind having it on display for all to see. As for the old makeup drawer, it now stores my makeup palettes, nail clippers, magnifying mirrors, tweezers, etc.
The bottom shelf of the vanity is where we keep extra rolls of toilet paper and the children's stool. The scale stays tucked neatly on the floor beneath that shelf. We keep magazines in a magazine basket between the vanity and the toilet.
In the shower, we have a corner caddy for all of the essentials and we have a little bucket that is attached to the wall for the bath toys. Please don't mind the soap scum wall. I JUST cleaned it and dries like that. I am about to search Pinterest for a solution. Like. Right. Now.
There you have it. Our small, yet functional and organized bathroom. P.S. If you noticed that the after picture has a different wall color than the before, my wonderful husband is to blame. He touched up some areas with a completely different color paint only to realize that we don't have anymore of the original color left. So, he ended up repainting the whole bathroom. Oh, men!
