glam up your bathroom | EASY DIYs

I recently did a home decor post about how I love living seasonally.  In that post you see that I have an industrial style apartment.  I LOVE my apartment and love that it's unique.  With its exposed brick walls and built in metal artwork, it really is one of a kind.  However, sometimes a girl needs some "glam" in her life.  My bathroom is truly a space of serenity and glam.  When I'm having a horrible day, nothing is better than a long soak in the bath.  My bathroom is MY place for relaxation and recharging.  This is one of the rooms in my apartment that I spend the MOST time decorating and sprucing up.

Today I'm sharing with you some super easy and affordable DIYs to help you add a little glam to your day!

||GLAM TIERED ORGANIZER||



For the glam tiered counter organizer, you'll need 3 metal trays, 2 candle stick holders, and some awesome glue.  I prefer E6000 since it's great for nearly ALL surfaces.


Liberally add your glue to the bottom rim your first candle stick holder.  This glue dries clear, so you don't have to be perfect with it.  You want to make sure you have a good helping of it on there.


Place your glued candle stick holder base onto the center of your first metal tray.  You'll want to try your best to get it centered.  Press it firmly down.


Now liberally add your glue to the top rim of your candle stick holder.  Again, this doesn't have t be perfect.  Just make sure you get it all coated.


Place your second metal tray onto the top rim of the candle stick holder.  Press firmly to get good contact of the glue on the tray.


Repeat those steps until you have 2 candle stick holders and 3 metal trays stacked up and glued.  You'll want to let this sit for at least 24hrs and up to 72hrs [based on the glue's instructions].


Once it's cured, you've got a beautiful glam tiered shelf for your bathroom counter!  Super easy, and super cheap.  You can get these products anywhere, but I picked mine up at Wal-Mart!

||GLAM COTTON SWAB & ROUND HOLDERS||


For this project you'll need 2 glass vases and 2 candle stick holders.  You'll also need your handy dandy glue!


Just like the tiered shelf, you're going to apply your glue liberally to the top rim of the candle stick holders.


Then place your vases onto the glued rims of the candle stick holders.  Even easier than the tiered shelf, and makes such a beautiful statement piece for your bathroom counter.



||GLAM WHITEBOARD||


For the whiteboard you'll want a pretty but non-expensive picture frame and scrapbook paper.  You'll need to cut down your scrapbook paper to fit the size of your picture frame.  I chose 5x7!


Now you have a pretty framed "whiteboard" that you can write notes or "to-buy" lists on!  You can either use dry-erase markers or a plain sharpie marker.  Dry-erase will come off easily with wiping.  If you choose a sharpie marker, you'll just need a paper towel dampened with alcohol to remove.


This DIY "whiteboard" is super handy to make reminders for when you use the last of something.  I like to use it to remind me to buy toilet paper!  Unfortunately, that's one of those items that you CAN'T do without!  So when you are on your last couple of rolls, use your glam DIY "whiteboard" to remind you to pick some up!


While at Wal-Mart, I picked up Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Bath Tissue.  Quilted Northern is a 100 year old brand, and is a bath tissue that I trust to get the job done.  They've recently updated their packaging to a more modern look.  It's sewer and septic safe so you can flush confidently.  I love that it's strong and flexible!

||GLAM MOUTHWASH CONTAINER||


One of my most favorite tips for easily adding glam to your bathroom is to use a glass or crystal decanter to hold your mouthwash in.  It's super chic and makes even oral hygiene feel glamorous!


Add a wine glass or martini glass to pour your mouthwash into, and you've got an oral hygiene glam party!


Lastly, I like to keep a recipe book stand in my bathroom so that while I'm getting ready in the morning, I can prop up my planner and take a look at the day ahead!  
[haha, you had to know my planner would make an appearance!]

What are your favorite tips for adding some "glam" to your bathroom?!  I'd love for you to share them!
