How to Makeover a Bathroom For Under $75 With a Ladder Shelf Towel Holder

The bathroom makeover continues.  If you missed my last post on the bathroom makeover and the before picture click here.  My daughter's bathroom does not have a linen closet and the cupboard under her sink is full with girlie things.  We needed a place for extra towels and a ladder shelf was the answer.

This is the top portion of the ladder I used for this tall ladder shelf.  The lovely grey patina is perfect for this bathroom.

I added a wider shelf, using a stray picnic basket lid.  I like knowing and showing this shelf was something else so I left the elastic silverware holder and put the lid hinge holes at the front of the shelf.

D rings attached to the back of the top ladder step hangs the shelf.

A $1 thrift store plate and a black and white of my daughter at her princess vanity when she was three adds a little color to this spot.

The top of the shelf holds a flicker candle in an old jello mold and extra washcloths.

I love the juxtaposition of the rustic shelf with the white feminine shower curtain.
