John and I have completed several projects around our house over the past couple of months. We planted flowers in the flower gardens in front of our house, trimmed some trees to open up the back yard more, installed a new kitchen faucet, among other things.
One area of our home that has really been bothering me, is the bathroom closet. Our bathroom closet is pretty good sized, with ample shelving, and had a lot of great potential. It just didn’t look very appealing. It was very boring, and there was a large area on the bottom that was covered in old and ugly floral patterned contact paper. It was quite an eyesore.
Because I hated our bathroom closet so much, I never really did anything with it. I just threw our toilet paper and a few odds and ends in it, and called it good. I was getting quite tired of looking at it in such a pathetic state, though, so I decided to give my bathroom closet a makeover.
I wanted to add a pop of color, as it was very “blah” looking with the white shelves and white walls. Duck Brand’s Shelf Liner came to my rescue! Walmart had a great selection of Duck Brand shelf liner colors and patterns to choose from.
I bought a few rolls of the taupe colored shelf liner, and measured and cut pieces to fit each of my shelves in the closet. The shelf liner was so easy to work with. I was able to cut right through it without any trouble, and it laid down flat and smooth.
John and I are really big into earthtones, and I absolutely love this taupe color. It goes well with the rest of our home, which is painted in shades of green, blue and brown.
I tore the contact paper off of the bottom of my closet, and it was a huge mess underneath, just as I had suspected.
I put shelf liner down on the shelf area, and then painted the rest with white paint. After sprucing up the shelves with Duck Brand’s Shelf Liner, I decided that I couldn’t just throw my open packages of toilet paper in there anymore. I wanted my bathroom closet to look more sophisticated and grown up. I bought a couple of brown wire baskets to house my rolls of toilet paper, and I think it is a great improvement.
Next, I was in need of some new towels, towels that actually matched, and had matching wash cloths and hand towels. As you can see in my before photo, I had a huge collection of mismatched towels, wash cloths and hand towels, that I have just accumulated over the last 10+ years. I don’t even remember where most of them came from. I bought myself a set of deep blue towels, wash cloths and hand towels, and I think they go very well with the taupe shelf liner.
I also bought a couple of tray boxes to house odds and ends, like hair and make up supplies. I had been keeping them all in tote bags, which made it very difficult for me to find anything when I needed it.
The shelf liner not only looks pretty, but it keeps all of my things in place with its grip surface, too. Everything was sliding around in here before, and I was constantly picking towels up off the floor.
I love my new sophisticated and grownup looking bathroom closet. I find myself opening it up every time I walk into the bathroom now, because it’s just so pretty to look at. My next project will be to put Duck Brand shelf liner in my kitchen drawers and cabinets!
