Repurposing Furniture: A Cool Idea for Towel Storage

About a year ago, a friend gave me an entertainment armoire. I thanked her profusely, put it in my daughter's bedroom, filled it with video games and other assorted kid junk, and called it a day. But it bothered me. It seemed like a waste of good storage to me. I drive my family crazy because I constantly rearrange the furniture. Why stop now?

I emptied it out, moved all that junk to better homes, and dragged it into my bathroom. I have a nook in there into which I had always fantasized about building in shelves, but it's been years and that has not happened. But I liked this option even better. It fit perfectly!

In the door section, I store bath towels and other often-used items. There are piles for towels for each member of the family. Because this is directly across from the tub, they are very easily accessible. (Note the repurposed baby wipes container. This one has neti pot supplies.)

In the top drawer, I store hand towels, bath mats, and face cloths.

And The bottom drawer is perfect for toilet paper and extra baby wipes, which I am never without.

It's rare that I have been so happy with a furniture repurpose, but with the proliferation of flat screen TVs, entertainment armoires are often available free or for cheap money. This is a great way to organize these items in your bathroom with something you may even already have in your home.

Thanks for reading!
