Organizing la Bathroom’s “Down Under”


As I stated two weeks ago, this month we are taking a trip “down under”.  Since The Bella Girls are taking an in depth look at la Bathroom, I thought I would start my “down under” organization here. 

Do you remember this horrendous “down under” which was in dire need of being “Bella-fied”?



Well, things are looking up!

For the low price of $10.00, I was able to purchase three dark brown baskets at the Hob Lob (aka Hobby Lobby).  In basket #1, I placed all of our travel cases and items that don’t get much use.  Since these items rarely get used, I knew this basket would be placed towards the back of my “down under” (this way I have easier access to items that get used on a daily basis).


Travel Items


Next, I pulled together all of the hygiene products that D and I use regularly. Then, I tried to organize them in a logical manner. (See Exhibit A & B)

For Basket #3, I gathered all of  my “bath time” products.

The end results turned out all little something like this….drum roll please…..

 Here are the before and after pics of D’s “Down Under” (I used an old basket I already had).








I know it’s nothing GLAM, but it’s practical. The best part is this TOTAL MAKEOVER = $10.00

    Camille - It looks great! I laughed when I saw your “scary” down under pictures—they looked great compared to mine! You’ve inspired me.

    camberley - LOL – some of my friends said the same thing. However, I am comparing my “down unders” to my mom’s. Just like everything else in her house, her sinks are AMAZING.

    Brooke Poulsen Breck - I loved that! Who knew that under our sinks could be Bella-fied too. So cool. I will have to get some stuff and get a cracking! I absolutely adore you site. Thanks.

    camberley - Thanks for your kind comment Brooke!

    I’m going to make thrift store and Hobby Lobby runs this weekend and look for more baskets. I’ll be tackling my hall bathroom and laundry room “down unders” next. After Keighley’s Landry Room Posts, I feel like I need to step it up a notch in the “Bella-fied” department. Maybe I’ll add ribbon or fun cabinet liners…

    Thanks again,
