I'm here today with a quickie. I think the very last time I updated you on our hall/guest bathroom, I was calling it done although there were a few pieces of trim missing. Well, I can proudly and officially say the trim has been installed and painted and this job is officially, official. I did want to give you guys an update on the industrial bathroom shelf we built above the toilet. You guys really love the look of these industrial shelves. So I wanted to let you know how they are holding up and include a few styling tips.
How to style an industrial bathroom shelf
The fun thing about shelves is the ability to easily change things out for a fresh new look. This process is something I've learned recently by just continuously moving things around. I may find something in my living room I'm loving and move it to the bathroom. Then there's this ah-ha moment. Like that works so much better in here. This constant process of flipping things around keeps your home's design and aesthetic looking fresh and new and not boring (and dusty.) Let's break out of the mentality that if something works well in one location that it has to stay there.

If you'll remember earlier this year I talked about items I use to create a farmhouse style shelf. I'm always grabbing books and clocks. But in a bathroom, I like to work with its essentials and create fun storage systems. Namely towels, cotton balls and q-tips and of course toilet paper. It's fun how something can be stylish and functional.
Yes, you can even make toilet paper look pretty.
Want to know a trick to making those folded towels look extra fluffy? Double it up and roll it in. Grab two towels, freshly fluffed in the drier and roll it into itself so that it looks like a Little Debbie's Swiss Roll. Then flatten it ever so slightly to make it look more like a fold.
