A single wooden pallet is enough to make a piece that serves both as a shelf and as a planter stand for the bathroom. The versatility of the design allows you to install the shelf/ stand in a lot of different places and ways. For example, if the toilet and tub are adjacent, separate them and, at the same time, create a beautiful privacy screen for the tub area. In this case it would also be really easy to water the plants.{found on memoirsofawannabegypsy}.

Another interesting idea is to design a floating shelf that doubles as a towel rack. You can find a description of the project on Themerrythought. The materials needed include a wooden board, a round dowel, flat braces, copper tubing hooks, double point tacks, a saw and a drill. Once you’ve cut the board and dowel to the desired size, attach the hooks and braces and then mount the whole thing on the wall.

A different option is to use a set of existing shelves and to put them in a new design. Of course, you can make this from scratch by cutting wood boards to the desire shape and size. Check out Atthewalkerhouse for detailed instructions. You’ll be using rope to connect all three shelves (the number can differ) which would only be an aesthetic detail since each shelf is individually attached to the wall. Consider display a planter or two on these shelves to freshen up and atmosphere and the décor.
