I also made a smaller version, that actually sits inside my new shower. Here it is in action.
I love it: such a functional concept. A plant stand is designed to get wet, right? Ergo, a natural bathroom storage piece!
The DIY could not be simpler. Just find a wrought iron plant stand:
I got that little cutie at Walmart, for less than four bucks. The tall one was six dollars at my neighborhood junque emporium.
A plate from the dollar store, simply placed on top:
Add some S-hooks.
Now just load it up with your soaps 'n' scrubbies 'n' stuff.
This would be an easy idea to adapt to lots of bathrooms. It's small enough to fit in a corner of many showers. It looks equally cute sitting next to a tub, or tucked into any little useless space. And of course you would choose the plate to match your decor...I picture a vintage china pattern in a shabby chic cottage, or a black-and-white geometric design in a mid century house.
As you can see, I went kinda bright, hee hee.
Want to hear the story behind my need for a shower caddy? My husband and I recently created a new Mexican tiled bathroom. My favorite element: a pair of funky arched nichos.
Sorta proud of them. *pats self on head*
I had planned on using the shower nicho to hold all of our toiletries. But bleah! Once everything got piled on, it looked cluttered.
So now all the potions and poufs go on the stand-alone caddy. And the nicho got a simple makeover. A couple of succulents and a sweet little Mexican bird:
Mucho better, doncha think?
That's all for today; hope you enjoyed the story and the repurpose. See ya next time!
