I cannot stand to see my cats’ litter box, but living so close to a major highway really leaves us no choice in keeping them inside. Several years ago when we first got Phoebe and Tobias I found a post about using an Ikea box and hinges to create a litter box container it served us well for a long time, but it was finally time for an upgrade.
My laundry room is getting closer and closer to exactly how I want it to look! When we were building the house, the builder insisted on installing the washer and dryer outlets at pedestal height even though I didn’t have a washer and dryer with pedestals. Well I hated it! Lesson learned don’t let someone talk you into something you don’t need or want. I enlisted my husband and dad’s help to make a shelving unit and mantel piece that would cover up the unsightly outlets.
I wanted to share this makeover I did for my toilet room in my master bath. I got the idea on Pinterest from HGTV. First, I measured 35.5″ on the wall that the toilet is backed up against. Then, I found Threshold shelves at Target that were 35″ and bought three. The one inch size difference made for a perfect fit in the space. ***On a side note, if you have Target Cartwheel I saved an extra 15% off on those shelves among other savings!***
I put the shelves 12″ apart and the lowest shelf is 32″ from the top of the toilet. When I drilled the holes for the shelves I avoided any areas that had studs just in case there was actually plumbing. Better safe than sorry, right? For hanging, I prefer E-Z Ancor drywall anchors from Home Depot. To make everything look nice I grabbed some decor from around the house that didn’t have a place and I used a cigar box to put in the matches that were in the orange solo cup. I love how this turned out and it took me 30 minutes to complete!
