We're used to decorating the living room and bedroom. There are also instances when we buy new pieces for the dining area and kitchen. But how about the bathroom? When was the last time you bought a new decor piece, a new rug, or a new bin for one of the most used areas at home?

If you're planning to give your bathroom an upgrade, here are projects that you can do that will surely add a personal stamp to your private space.

Personalized cabinet

With just a couple of coats of chalkboard paint, you can turn the interior of your medicine cabinet into a note board. Write down inspirational quotes and positive messages to start the day right. You may also take note of supplies that you need to buy using your DIY board.

Personalized bathroom bins

If you are sharing the bathroom with many people, it's best to keep everyone's essentials organized and kept in personalized bins. Repurpose old drawers or small boxes into open bins. Let the owner personalize his or her bin by adding cutouts, fabric, and stickers.

Aside from using it to separate essentials, you may also use old boxes to hold the different supplies like toothpaste, cotton buds, and cotton, to name a few.

Open Shelf

Thick and sturdy branches can complete white open shelves in the bathroom. This gives your space a rustic and outdoorsy feel. Once done, you may use the shelf to organize towels, bottles, and other bathroom essentials. Personalize the space by throwing in a couple of decor pieces.
