DIY over the toilet storage cabinet

Bathroom, DIY, Furniture, Organization, Storage

Finding good bathroom storage solutions can be challenging for a tiny bathroom, especially when you’re on a budget. One of my favorite solutions are over the toilet storage cabinets – you can buy some already made, but I think it’s more fun to build your own and customizing it to your exact needs. So I designed one that can easily be but together with a drill and screws using inexpensive wood like furring strips and pine boards.

It was the perfect way to add extra storage in my friend’s bathroom – you can see the entire makeover, including how I installed a peel and stick tile backsplash, in this video:

And you can also see how I upgraded the very dated bathroom lighting fixture for less than $15 in this video:


  1. I was searching for a DIY over the toilet bathroom shelf to make for my daughter’s dorm – I love this video. If not for the fact that it needs to be anchored to the wall, I’d build this for her. I’m wondering if a ‘ladder’ type base would make it un-tippable, or if it could somehow be secured to the toilet tank to prevent a topple. Command strips, though all the rage for every other use in the dorm room, don’t seem sufficient. Anyway, great post!
