Take your bathroom countertop from drab to fab!

Updated on October 31, 2010

Did you know?

 Our bathroom counter-tops are usually filled to the rim with toothpaste, washcloths, soaps, makeup and tons of other things. But did you know that some of your favorite kitchen accessories could be used to fab up your bathroom counter-top in no time? Well I'm going to show you how!

Step 1

 Would you happen to have an extra egg poacher laying around? Well they usually come in pairs, so chances are if you have one you have another hiding somewhere in those cupboards. So dig it out and tack it to the wall and use it as a holder for those damp washcloths or loofahs.

Step 2

 Chances are you probably got a magnetic knife block as a wedding present or even a house warming gift at some point. You've probably thrown it in a drawer and forgotten all about it...well dig it out..............

Because now you can hang it up right under your mirror and make your makeup brushes, eyelash curlers and tweezers even more accessible by hanging them right on the magnet. De-cluttering your drawers and your counter-tops! Who knew!

If by chance they don't happen to stick to the magnetic holder run out and get some inexpensive tiny magnets and glue them to the back of your accessories!

Step 3

 Everyone knows how ugly and cluttering those mouthwash bottles can be. So if you happen to have an old wine decanter lying around put it to use and transfer your mouthwash into.

Step 4

We all hate those bars of soap lying on the bathroom counter-tops admit it! So why not take a veggie peeler and shave off bits of the soap into a pretty tea saucer or extra ramekin. That way when someone needs to wash their hands they only take as much as they need. Saving those bathroom counter-tops from ugly soap scum and wet, nasty soap bars!

Step 5

 Not all of us keep cotton balls around the house. But for those of you that keep them and have them in the bathroom, free up some space and place them in old jam jars or juice glasses.

If those jars come with ugly labels, be sure to soak them in hot, soapy water overnight then just peel and scrub the excess away in the morning.

      Interesting ideas! I love finding different uses for various things - or finding an un-planned thing to fill a need it was not designed to fill - - but fills it cleverly.

      I like the magnetic strip idea the best!! If you don't have one from a knife set, The Container Store sells them as magnetic bulletin board strips. Your idea is much more useful than using it as a (way too small) bulletin strip!
