By using some leftover wood to build a holder, you can solve the issue of running out of a roll and keeping your bathroom design worthy. You can build your holder in however design you want that works for you.
If your bathroom’s towel rack is poorly placed and you are unable to reach them from the shower, maybe you need a new one. You don’t want to walk across your bathroom making your floor soaking wet in search of a towel. You can get creative with it and build a towel rack with a thick piece of wood and an industrial pipe and use it as shelving. If you look on Pinterest, there are many different styles of towel racks to help you gain some inspiration.
If you have a significant amount of wood leftover or available to you, you can build a vanity that has a sink and acts as your main counter space or an additional one to use as a makeup counter. Guys, we promise you if you build your girlfriend or wife a makeup vanity, they will love you forever. This project is awesome for anyone, because you can make it as simple or as complex as you want.
In your bathroom, especially if you have little ones that enjoy baths, it can get hectic in your bathroom with the different bath products for everyone in your family, bath toys, and towels- you need space. You can build a bathroom cart in one of two ways, you can use wood and build it from scratch, or you can combine wooden crates and secure them together. This makes bath time with kids easy because you can roll the cart over and have everything right beside you and be able to roll it away when you’re not using it. Even if you don’t have kids, this system is perfect for extra bath products, Epsom salt jars, bath bombs or extra towels so they are always handy.
