Have you ever thought about open shelving in the bathroom? I did another post about it here. This is just another great example of how it can work for you. Love the wire baskets for towels, a spot of fragrance bottles, wrapped soaps and a small mirror. I guess if you're spending some additional time in there, you could grab a book from the top shelf.
This also caught my eye. Do you think my grandmother would mind if I use her silver sugar and creamer she gave me for cotton balls and q-tips? I think it's brilliant and may give it a try!
