DIY bathtub shelfMay 31, 2014
With two kids under three years old, I love my time for relaxing! I love taking a bath and just closing my eyes and resting. It’s divine after a long day spent cleaning up all sorts of kid messes!
But I always go into the bathtub with a ton of stuff: a drink or two (usually tea), my cell phone, my tablet, sometimes a magazine, sometimes a candle, sometimes a snack!
And there’s not enough room for all these things. So I wanted to create an easy bathtub shelf to solve this problem, and I’m sharing the tutorial here with you all! It’s an easy one, I promise!
DIY bathtub shelf
- board of wood (I had extra wood left over after this project)
- two small 1″ x 2″ boards of wood, cut to 5 inches long
- wrapping paper
- Modge Podge
- Make sure the length of your wood equals the width of your bathtub. It needs to fit across the width of the bathtub. The home improvement store will usually cut it for free.
- Position the small boards to wood on the underside of the big board, aligned just inside the edges of the bathtub to prevent the shelf from slipping.
- Paint your wood. Let dry.
- Attach the wrapping paper using Modge Podge to spruce up the final design. Seal the whole board with Modge Podge as a protective sealant.
