Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Decorating Solutions For a Boring Bathroom

Creating an attractive bathroom that compliments the rest of your home doesn't have to cost a fortune. It's easy to spend hundreds of even thousands of dollars on expensive bathroom furnishings if you aren't careful. Don't get wrong, there are some bathroom furnishings that homeowners should buy rather than make, such as a teak shower bench, but there plenty of DIY accessories that will drastically improve the appearance of your bathroom.

Wooden Pallet and Crates Storage Shelves

This is one of my personal favorite DIY shelving systems for the bathroom. As you can see from the image above, it's a basic pallet with several crates attached to the top. The end result is a bathroom accessory that's simple yet unique and sophisticated in its own way. Unless your bathroom is decorated around a black color scheme (brown and black don't mix), this shelving system is sure to compliment the surrounding decor.

In addition to the stylish aesthetics it brings to your bathroom, using this wooden pallet and crate shelving system will open up a whole new world of storage options. You can install hooks on top of the crate to hang wet towels and use the top crates to store washcloths, toiletries, clean towels, toilet paper or pretty much anything else you desire.

Mason Jars

Another excellent DIY decorating solution for a boring bathroom is a storage system using mason jars. I stumbled across this while scanning through Pinterest the other day and thought I'd share it here on the Teak Your Shower Blog. It consists of a treated piece of wood that's screwed into the bathroom studs. On the face of the wood is several metal bands which connect around the lid of the mason jars, preventing them from falling down.

What you choose to store in these mason jars is entirely up to you, but some suggestions include Q-tips, cotton balls, floss, makeup pads, makeup brushes, etc.

Vinyl Wall Decals

Of course, you can always decorate the walls of your bathroom with a vinyl monogram or phrase. I'm a huge fan of vinyl wall decals; they're simple, beautiful, look amazing, and they're able to withstand the high humidity of a typical bathroom. You can either purchase a vinyl wall decal that's already made, or you can create your own with a cutting machine like the Cricut. Just remember to choose a vinyl color that matches the current furnishings and decor.
