Ever see some really cute decor idea in a magazine or on Pinterest and you just want to know exactly how to replicate it? I know I’ve done that and used Pinterest to inspire me to hang floating shelves in my bathroom.  Maybe decorating isn’t your forte and you just want someone to tell you exactly what each item is and where to get it?  Well today I’m going to show you exactly how I filled the floating shelves that I put above the toilet.

  1. First, get these floating shelves from Amazon
  2. Place on the upper left this Lantern with LED candle.
  3. Get a small galvanized bucket (I got mine at Michaels, but here is a similar one on Amazon), fill it with a small cube of floral foam and boxwood greenery and place it on the upper right floating shelf.
  4. For the bottom shelf, start with a small wood crate, (mine is 10″x6″ and I found it at a thrift store) and stain it with Rustic Reality Unicorn Spit.  Unicorn Spit is great because it is a water-based stain that’s easy to apply and toxic-free.  After the stain dries, fill the wooden crate with a couple of toilet paper rolls and some rolled up washcloths.
  5. Make some homemade bar soap – I have quite a few tutorials on making your own melt and pour hand soap. (You can make 12 bars in one hour – it’s really easy to do!)  Choose from Lavender, Lemon Poppy Seed, Orange Creamsicle, or Rose scented.  Each one comes with free printable soap labels!
  6. Grab a glass container to hold cotton balls – either an apothecary glass jar or in my case an upcycled yankee candle holder where I cleaned out the wax and removed the label.
  7. Get an 8oz jam mason jar that will become a q-tip holder.
  8. Last, add a bottle of Poo pourri and J.R. Watkins hand soap to complete filling your bathroom shelves!

Now wasn’t that easy?!  No more looking through a magazine or Pinterest and wondering how to get the exact look – because here it is!
