Make it Monday: stylish bathroom organiser


Posted 27th Aug 2018

It's so easy for our bathrooms to look cluttered - shaving brush, aftershave, cotton wool pads, eyelash curlers, to name but a few, all take up valuable space

Get around this by creating your own space-saving bathroom organiser! It's incredibly easy to make and is ideal for even the smallest of bathrooms, as this tutorial from Bosch explains... 

You will need

Metal drill bit 3mm
Wood drill bit 1-2mm 
Hammer drill
Pencil 
Drill bit for wall plugs depending on the wall 
Ruler 
Long board 
Jars 
Stainless steel hose clips 
Wood screws 
Wall plugs 

Directions

1 Mark out the jars

Use a ruler to get the centre point.

You will need: pencil, ruler, wood, jars
 
The first step is to mark out the position of the jars on the wooden shelf. Position them so that the jars will be equidistant and centred on the shelf. The length of the shelf and number of jars are optional.

2 Drill the holes 

Don't forget to pre-drill!

You will need: hammer drill, wood drill bit 

Then pre-drill the holes that you have marked on the board using a thin wood drill bit. Next drill the holes using a rotary hammer drill.

3 Time to fit the hose clips 

Screw the hose clips in place.

You will need: hammer drill, metal drill bit 3mm, screws, hose clips 

Before continuing, pre-drill the hose clips with a thin 3mm metal drill bit. Then fix the clips to the shelf with wood screws in the places you have marked out on the shelf.

4 Adding the finishing touches 

Now to add the jars!

You will need: hammer drill, jars, screws, wall plugs 

Last but not least, place the jars in the hose clips and tighten. Then fix the finished bathroom organiser to the wall with wall plugs, screws and a rotary hammer drill. Your eyelash curlers, cotton buds and shaving brushes now have a new home.
