Make It Monday: Bathroom Tiered Storage

This was a fun little project I decided to put together to store the random bathroom accessories that occasionally clutter my counter. Fun fact: It's also a dollar store creation that cost me a total of $2 to make.

What you'll need:

1 medium terracotta pot base
1 small terracotta pot base
1 mini terracotta pot
Black spray paint
Black felt
Hot glue
Optional: 1 miniature plastic animal
Optional: Acrylic paint


Step 1. Spray paint both terracotta pot bases and the mini terracotta pot with a high gloss black spray paint, or whatever colour you prefer. Re-coat as directed and allow to dry completely.

Step 2. Trace the bottom of the medium terracotta pot base onto the black felt. Cut out the circle of felt and adhere it to the bottom of the medium terracotta pot base with hot glue.

Step 3. Using hot glue adhere the bottom of the mini terracotta pot to the centre of the medium terracotta pot base. Then run a small amount of hot glue around the top rim of the pot and secure the small terracotta pot base on top.

Step 4. Optional: Using acrylic paint jazz up your miniature plastic animal. Once it's dry hot glue it to the centre of the top of your tiered storage unit. This ugly red and black rooster got a lovely coat of cranberry acrylic paint before being deemed suitable as a tiered storage topper.

Now it's ready to take on the task of holding the bathroom counter clutter.

Happy Monday!
