{pretty & functional} Bathroom Storage Ideas

Don’t you just love a well-organized bathroom with functional and pretty storage galore? I sure do! As I’m thinking over my own house, trying to decide which home improvement projects I want to commit to this year, I keep wondering about whether to include my master bathroom.

Honestly, I’m not much of an advance project planner. Usually I do things on a whim. But I really want to be extra intentional about my time and money in 2013, and I know how easy it is to have one whim lead to another and pretty soon, you’ve gone out on a lot of whims. {grin…. whims, get it? Limb? Oh, I crack myself up sometimes.}

My master bathroom is not particularly pretty as it is, and it isn’t especially functional either. It could use a little makeover. AND, the toilet doesn’t work, so there is that.  It has been broken for a couple of years. Eh hem. But, it isn’t the worst bathroom ever, though, so I’m thinking maybe I might allow myself a little bit of a functional storage makeover with a bit of pretty thrown in (and completely avoid a total remodel, which I’d like to do someday but it really isn’t necessary right now).

We’ll see. I’m still working on my home goals for this year, so no promises of projects yet!

Enjoy this round up of pretty and functional ideas!
