I wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your kind words and support on my new Etsy shop. If you didn’t know my husband and I opened up an Etsy shop and you guys have just been so sweet and so supportive.If you haven’t checked that out, I will link it in my description box down below, but I’m really excited and I just wanted to say thank you so so much because you are all so appreciated. So today’s, video going to be DIYs for your bathroom, but most of these items are from the Dollar Tree, so that is going to be off.
I’m sure. Let’s, go ahead and get right into these DIYs, so I picked up three of these glass and milk jugs from Dollar Tree. I love the detailing on them. I feel like they have such a farmhouse style vibe, and what I wanted to do with these was paint them and distress them.I gave these milk jugs a coat of black spray-paint first and then I followed that up with two coats of chalk paint in white and after that had dried thoroughly. Then I used some sandpaper to go over the detailing of the jugs and also around the lip.So this part will be up to you guys on how much paint you want to take off, but I really love the detailing on this, so I really wanted it to shine through as much as I could so I took off quite a lot and I love The finished look, so here is how they turned out, and I am obsessed they’re just three dollars.I feel like they look amazing. I used greenery from chip and Joanna Gaines his line at Target. It was on sale, but you could also pick up greenery at any craft store or at Dollar Tree. The next DIY is some bathroom shelves, so we went to Lowe’s and picked up some flat stock metal.These were six dollars and we got two of them and then we measured them to 10.5 inches in used a plasma cutter to cut them down to that size. My husband said that the actual tool that you’re supposed to use for this is called a metal band saw, but those are about $ 20,000 and we don’t have that money to spend on a metal band saw.So this works just as well. After the medal was cut, then my husband bent the metal at a 90 degree angle, four inches up from the bottom. This clamp helps keep the medal in place, so it doesn’t, move around awhile, trying to bend it, and then my husband just use a set of pliers to bend this medal and then measured it after it had been bent to make sure that It was the proper length after that he used a power drill to drill a hole into the shorter side, the four-inch side, where it would be hung on the wall.
Next, we use white spray paint to paint to seven inch by 28 inch boards and we attach them to these metal pieces after the boards were attached. Then we hung the shelves above the toilet, and these each came out to be about six dollars each.We had a couple of pieces of wood at our house. If you didn’t have the wood, it would be a little bit more, but that’s way less expensive than if you buy shelves pre-made, and I thought that these turned out so cute.I will show you how I decorated these shelves in just a minute. I have a couple of items that I use from Dollar Tree to decorate the top of these. So I’m, going to show you those and then show you how everything looks all together.I picked up three of these glass jars from Dollar Tree and sorry. The lighting is so yellow. I’m, not sure why I was recording, in my rest room and the lighting isn’t quite as good in there, but I did fill these up with cotton, balls and q-tips.You can find q-tips and cotton balls at Dollar Tree, and this entire display can be made from items that you can find there. I feel like Dollar Tree SKU tips might not be as cheap, actually as if you just bought a huge pack from Walmart.
But this way they don’t all end up getting lost and thrown everywhere. I got this wire basket from Bella tree and I really didn’t do anything to it, because I liked it just how it was – and I just put some folded up white hand towels into this basket, and I got these white hand towels from Target, but you could just use some wash rags that you can get from Dollar Tree for a dollar if you would.Rather, I just had these hand towels already, so I didn’t buy any more washer eggs. I also got this long basket from Target and I looked for something at the Dollar Tree. I just didn’t find what I wanted, so I had to make a little bit of a splurge.I know I know, but I just filled this up with toilet paper, and my plan with this was just to put it on the back of my toilet. So I typed up this label just on my computer and then I printed it out on a regular sticker paper or it’s just paper that has an adhesive backing and then I cut it down the size, and I put it on this empty Soap bottle and I should have filled this bottle up with soap before I did this, but sometimes I don’t think things through.So this was really easy, though, and honestly I just wrote this and I wrote whatever I wanted it to say and I feel like it looks like it was way more expensive than what it actually was. I got the soap and the soap dish at Dollar Tree and for the soap dish, all I did was hit it with a couple coats of white spray paint super super easy and inexpensive.
Okay, so you can print off this free, printable, soap label from house of Hargrove comm and shout out to chic on the cheap, because she actually did this in her video. I will link her channel and put a card up above.If you want to check that out, so what I did was just print this off and then I took one of these soaps out from the container and I wrapped it up, and then I tried some jute twine around the outside.After that, I used some tape to remove part of the paint that was on the soap dish. I wanted to give this a distressed, rustic look and I am loving how this turned out. Actually, my original thought was to paint around the outside edge of this, but I put some tape on there and it took some of the paint off and I loved the look.So there you go. Sometimes accidents turn out to be better than what you expected. After that, the final step was to decorate these shelves, and I used several of the DIYs that I just showed you, and I also put a couple of the signs that we sell in our Etsy shop and my favorite one is the nice but one.
