DIY bathroom shelf design by My Thrifty Life by Cassiefairy 

Is there anything better than soaking in a bubbly bath with a good book and a cup of tea? We have teamed up with My Thrifty Life by Cassiefairy to create a step-by-step DIY project which shows you how to build a little bath-side shelving unit by recycling leftover materials. The resulting driftwood-style bathroom shelving unit is the perfect place to store bath products and provides a handy stand for your mug (or wine glass!). 

You don’t need much timber for this project – we’ve upcycled small 20cm offcuts of scaffold board and broken broom handles to create a compact unit, but you can make it any size and shape you like, as long as it is securely assembled and feels sturdy. The sanded and waxed timber creates a soft, driftwood finish that’s ideal for coastal-style bathrooms, or you could paint and seal the wood to coordinate with your interiors. The creative bathroom shelf unit is a great storage hack for small spaces – and is cheap and easy so can cater for everyone.
