bathroom remix

although we only have one {very small} bathroom in our house - somehow we make it work.

because of lack of storage space for the bathroom, when we first moved in {over two years ago} we had no other choice than to roll in a rubbermaid drawer storage contraption to hold makeup and hair stuff, extra toothpaste, ect. it was ugly, but necessary, so we dealt.
until last week, when we decided that outside of the bathroom was the perfect place for some kind of cabinet or dresser-type-bathroom-storage-type piece of furniture. so i went on a hunt, and after visiting a ton of stores, found this cute little piece at none other than bed bath and beyond.
so i bought it {on sale for a mere $79 of which i then used one of their fabulous 20% off coupons!} and we put it together. but before i could unload all of my junk into it, i needed to find some sort of boxes or baskets to keep everything organized and hidden behind the clear glass doors...
so i went on a hunt again and found the perfect boxes{at officemax of all places}. pounded tin boxes that are the exact measurement for each shelf. and best yet, they were on sale for $3.49 {originally $14.99} each. so i bought them out - got five instead of the three i needed. i ended up putting the fourth on the back of the toilet to hold extra toilet paper and tissue, ect and the other in the kitchen to hold all of Curtis' many fancy coffee "supplies." it was a sucessful little project that we are very happy with and best of all, the unsightly grey plastic storage until is no longer...
