We have one cabinet and one sink in our bathroom. We don’t even have a medicine cabinet. Needless to say, this has forced us to be very creative with our bathroom storage. I even went through and moved everything I don’t use that often into our guest bathroom and I still felt like my counter was drowning in beauty products.
I saw some cute organizers in my Pottery Barn magazine, but they were outrageous ($70 for a little metal towel holder?! Why, PB? Why?!). I’m not sure why I get it. It’s really only good for making my heart die a little bit whenever I look at the prices. So, I was walking around the opposite of Pottery Barn (Goodwill) when I found this dinner and salad plate set that I thought was adorable. There was only one dinner plate and one salad plate so I knew I had to think of something crafty to do with them in order to justify taking them home with me.
Then it hit me – my bathroom! I moseyed over to what I like to call the “hodge-podge section” and found a ceramic candlestick holder that went perfectly with the plates. I rushed home, heated up my ever-so-handy glue gun and had a bathroom organizer in less than 5 minutes and for under 5 buckaroos. Slam dunk the funk, my friends.
In case you couldn’t figure it out from the picture… here’s the steps:

2. Hot glue the small plate to the top of the candlestick holder.
