    Thank you for sharing your creative ideas made simple! We have a large home, and live in the country. Its hard to run back and forth so improvising is what I like , to think out of the box. Love your creativity! Keep up the good work!

    I know this may sound disgusting, but hear me out – bed pans! Yes, that’s what I said. I bought vintage/antique, white (enameled ?) bedpans that I found on etsy and anchored them to my bathroom walls. I originally just had one propped in a corner holding magazines, but somehow the idea of two or more attached to the wall for extra storage came barreling out at me. Just to be sure, I boiled and cleaned with bleach every single one and once satisfied, put them up. They’re fantastic, quirky and and spectacular conversation pieces if any of my guests actually realize what they are (once they are hung up), I think people don’t connect the dots because really? Who is going to pay much attention – no one I know equates bed pans with wall mounted storage units? They are hiding in plain sight – genius!!!

    I really like your site! Thanks for all the great ideas and inspiration. I really like the green and mint color in the bathroom. I’ve been looking for a new fresh color!
