Wood Wine Crates For Bathroom Organization? Yes!

It’s the time of year when I try to organize my life …..again. I started de-cluttering my home back in June of 2015. I did a great job too. I got through every room in our home except the den. I even went back and de-cluttered one of the guest bedrooms a second time.

I’m going to start with that room again and go through the whole de-cluttering process in the next couple of months. No, I didn’t collect a bunch more stuff in the house I just need to get rid of some of the things I hung on too.

For the past year or so I’ve been using this glass tray to corral my lotions and other products on the bathroom vanity. I didn’t realize how disorganized it looked until I finished this project.

Looks more organized than all that stuff sitting on the tray.

The second crate holds extra wash cloths.

I didn’t stop with the vanity counter top. I moved on to the drawers. I didn’t plan to organize the drawers (don’t want to get too crazy) but the hubby and I were in Sams Club before Christmas and I spotted this drawer organizer set…..

For $19.99 I couldn’t pass it up. The turquoise was the perfect color too!

The vanity drawers went from looking like this.
