DIY Toilet Shelves: Before & After

Hi Friends,

When Cameron and I moved into our new place, we quickly noticed that the master bathroom was a little quirky. For example, there are no doors to enter it, the mirrors weren't framed, but most of all the toilet room is quite small and had this ugly metal shelf. I often walked across the house to go into the guest bathroom instead since the master toilet was just not an enjoyable place to sit... so I decided the first DIY for our house would be a bathroom shelving DIY!

What You Need:

  • Wood Board

  • Saw

  • Pencil

  • Measuring Tape

  • Stain (optional)

  • Screws

  • Brackets


1) Measure Space

The first step is to measure the space where you would like the shelves.

2) Measure Wood

Next measure the wood to your desired dimensions

3) Saw

Saw the wood. I started with a hand saw but it didn't go all the way through so we had to use a machine saw

4) Stain

This is optional but now is the time to stain or paint your shelves.

5) Screw

Screw the brackets into the wall and then into the shelves. I did the opposite but recommend doing it this way listed because that would've been much easier.

I was happy to put the towels and toilet paper rolls on this since before they had been stored in our bedroom closet - and nobody wants to walk around when they find out there's no toilet paper. I also added a faux plant for decoration and a toilet book for longer sits.

Overall, I am so happy with the results and think it looks so much better than before!

Nothing better than a husband who can use a table saw! Ht
