DIY Toothbrush Holder

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hey y'all!  Hope you had a great 4th of July.  We celebrated with friends and family, put on an awesome fireworks show and watched an outdoor movie! We had so much fun!  So much fun, that we needed a little break!  We've been working on some projects, swimming in our new pool, and most importantly welcoming a new little baby into the world.  Remember Jen, my best friend?  She had her sweet baby boy on Saturday and I was lucky enough to be by her side.  It was an unforgettable experience and I'm so honored and blessed to have been a part of it.  A day I know I'll cherish forever.  :)

Alright, so I'm going to show y'all the last (I think?) DIY project from our bathroom remodel project!  We've talked about the big reveal, walked you through the 
plank wall
hand towel holder, 
barnwood vanity light, 
ladder towel storage
our faucet face-lift, 

and now finally, our DIY TOOTHBRUSH HOLDER!





This project was so simple, it barely requires instructions.  Seriously.  It's all about re-purposing the clutter in your house!!!  Sometimes I look around our house and just start picking things up.  I take them and move them to another space or another room as if I'm de-cluttering.  I'm really just cluttering up a new space! haha!  

In this case, we took something old which was really just taking us space and cluttering up an end table, and created a one-of-a-kind toothbrush holder!



Charlie used a hole saw bit and drilled out a few holes in the bottom of our country dreams box.  



Then, we sanded it down and painted it blue using the same paint from our plank wall.  After the blue paint dried, I lightly white washed it using a very small amount of white paint on the tip of a paint brush.  This is the same technique we used while painting the planks and the ladder storage.  

When we were finished, we had a toothbrush holder that matched the rest of our decor and colors perfectly! 




What do you think??? I love how it turned out and you know what I love even more???  This project was FREE as can be!!!  That's the best type of project!

We're hoping to finish up some patio updates and possibly show you Miss Paisley's room soon, so stay tuned!  

Follow along!
