Pretty Bathroom Storage Ideas

After my recent bathroom remodel, I wanted to overhaul the storage in the room as well. By removing my old medicine cabinet and updating the vanity, I lost a little bit of storage space. In my new room, I not only had to be smarter with how I stored all of my essentials, I also wanted it to look great!

The first step was to really clean out what I was storing in my bathroom. I got rid of a ton of old products that I was never going to use.

Shoe Storage Makeover

I recently shared my mini makeover in my blogger home office. I use this room to store a lot of my closet, especially my shoe collection. I used to dream of being able to afford designer shoes long before I ever went to fashion design school, and to me, they represent how hard I have worked in my career!

When I first moved into my house, I found a bookcase on the side of the road that I loaded into my car and used to store my shoes and purses. As I’ve finally grown up a little bit and can actually afford furniture, I wanted to get the monstrosity out of the room and replace it with something a little nicer.
