Bathroom: Shelves behind Toilet

So when we bought our house, I desperately wanted to do a wall like this one from the Lettered Cottage.

WonderWall

 

FANTASTIC wall!!!  Initially I wanted to do it on the wall in the living room that you first see when you walk in the door.

Handsome Man didn’t think it was a good idea.  Something about too many plumbing lines, electric, and heat ducts? Whatever.

Anyway… I opted for a much smaller version in my bathroom!

First I added a distressed 2×6 to close in that awkward gap between the wall and the chimney.  Yay for Handsome Man knowing how to screw into solid brick!

He’s cute AND functional!!!

Gross huh?

This is the downside to screwing into brick.  Especially above the toilet paper holder.

I used scrap 2×6’s for the frame and these hardwood flooring samples for the backside to look like planks.

Personally, I think the idea of using the flooring samples is genius.

Who thought of doing that anyway???

Oh right… That was me! 😉

I have all the things that make my heart go pitter-patter on this wall.

Yeah…. I LOVE this part of my bathroom!

Not a whole Wonderwall like the Lettered Cottage’s….  But enough to make me very happy!
