We painted wood crates white and mounted them to the wall to store toilet paper and accessories in this small bathroom.
We found these small wood crates at Pottery Barn, but many similar boxes - both new and vintage - exist elsewhere.
Looking for a way to add whimsy, style, and functionality to a small bathroom?
We skipped the generic toilet paper holder and instead created a unique open shelf for rolls and other items in our powder room.
The starting point was with two small rustic wood storage crates from Pottery Barn. You could find similar wood crates at a flea market, or even fabricate your own out with a few pieces of wood and some time. The crates were originally dark brown; we brightened them up to complement our bathroom's crisp white theme with white spray paint. Both of these crates are mounted to the wall studs using wood screws.
In this small bathroom with minimal storage, the crates provide surfaces for a variety of items. Because this bathroom is frequently used by guests, it's nice to have the toilet paper rolls out in plain sight so they don't have to dig through the cabinets to find them if needed.

We've gathered some of our favorite sofas and armchairs in gorgeous blue velvets, along with design inspiration from around the web.
Velvet fabric can be a bit trickier to clean than other fabrics because, in addition to removing the stain, you must take care to avoid "crushing" the nap of the fiber. Here are some tips to help you successfully remove stains without damaging your beautiful furniture.

Everyone complains about a lack of closet space, mostly because we humans are like goldfish - we grow to the size of our container.
