Today marks the last day of Get Organized Month – how did everyone fare? I managed to clean out the pantry and guest bedroom/catch-all closet, and you’ll be happy to know that both areas still look surprisingly top-notch. If you’re looking to conquer another room today, then you’re in luck because we’re heading to the bathroom. So, to finish off GO Month and help you get organized in one of the smallest rooms in the house, we have a simple project that will transform your bathroom walls in no time.

Get Organized: Fast and Easy Crate Shelving

wall crate shelves bathroom storage

For most of us, our bathrooms are fairly small and offer little storage. And, of course, we have more perfumes, lotions and soaps than we could ever possibly need. Here’s where vertical wall storage comes into play. Put your favorite and most-used bathroom items on display in a convenient way. Here’s how:

Take wooden crates that are less than 6 inches deep and paint with spray paint. Decide where you want to put them on the wall. (We suggest staggering them a bit so you can use the tops of the crates for storage space, too.) Apply large picture-hanging strips to the backs of each crate (each strip can hold up to 4 pounds), and hang them on the wall in desired placement. Get the Full Step-by-Step Instructions Here >>

Did you attain some level of organization this month? Conquer the catch-all drawer in the kitchen? Clean out your closet’s unworn clothes? Recycle all the magazines you’ve been stashing for five years? Tell us in the comments, and share your tips, too!

    I have a VERY VERY SMALL bathroom in the Master Bedroom and our Guest Bathroom is VERY VERY small as well.. The Master Bedrrom bathroom has one door to walk in my tiny closet of clothes and one door that goes into where the shower/toilet seat is. I have thought about tearing the wall out and making my bedroom as well as the bathroom much bigger, but I don't have the moolah to do this…. Any suggestions???? I can take pics and post if need be just to let you see what I am talking about!

    Sincerely,

    ~~~~Debbie/NO SPACE~~~~~~

    I like what you did with your bathroom shelves. It looks very posh and preppy. I have too many stuffs at home that I want to keep at the storage in Perth so that I could provide space for shelving soon. Thanks for this nice idea.
