DIY Bathroom Accessories For Your Rustic Bathroom

Bathroom accessories can be very expensive to buy these days.  I was completely shocked the last time I went to price towel bars and other accessories.  While some things I have no problem spending money on, there are others that I simply cannot.

If I can make an accessory for just a fraction of the retail cost, I am definitely going to do it!  Plus, some of the things that you can make have so much more character and style than what you can buy.

This rustic tissue box cover is just one of a couple different designs that I have made for our bathrooms.  I like to cover up the cardboard tissue boxes and these easy designs provide a nice rustic accent as well as serving a desired purpose.  Click on the link for several different tissue box cover tutorials.

You can easily make this toothbrush holder by using a hollowed out birch log and a couple of wooden discs.  Or, you could cover a can with birch bark to get the same type of look and still enclose the top with a round disc with holes drilled in for a toothbrush or two to fit inside.

Here are some other ideas that I found:

I love this bath caddy that was put together using an old fruit crate on top of a vintage ladder.   This unique idea was designed by Poetic Home and makes a warm and rustic bathroom accessory.

Old mason jars make the perfect storage container to use as a bathroom accessory and I love how Clean And Scentsible put this ensemble together.

Here is a great idea from Junk Camp for using old wooden hangers as a place to hang towels.  You can hang a large towel from the hook part of the hanger and drape a smaller hand towel over the wooden form.

Depending on your bathroom space, you may have less room on your walls and more room to hang a towel rod from your ceiling.  This unique design from Remodelista uses a branch and some rope to create a rustic spa like feel that is full of design appeal.

I like the idea of using old moulding or other rustic wood and attaching hooks to it for towel hanging.  This particular design was done by HGTV.

Do you have some diy rustic bathroom accessory ideas that you would like to share?

Happy Decorating!
