Makeshift Shelf For Bathroom Counter

contest winner icon

I moved into an apartment that has almost no counter space, especially in the bathroom.

I took one of the spacers from a pressboard book case and cut it to fit the width of the back of the sink's counter. Then I covered two vegetable cans with contact paper, and then the board. It made a nice shelf for pretties against the back. Nothing would have fit, and now I don't have to worry about it!

Thanks everyone. I am doing the same thing this week to my kitchen counter, only with blue and yellow paper. Another cool way to support shelving boards is glass jars filled with colored glass beads from the dollar tree, or buttons, spools of thread, or marbles. Anything small that you collect can be used, as well as colored water. N-JOY!

This was very creative. Great idea. I am going to do the same to my very small counter top in my bath! Thank you for submitting this.

What a great idea! I did that similar thing under my bathroom sink, where there's lots of "floor" space with too much wasted space above it. I covered a piece of board about half the area of the floor & perched it just on some soda cans to give me more storage area. Ditto under my kitchen sink.
