If you are like me, you have electric toothbrushes in your home. I didn't care for everyone sharing one toothbrush base because there were bound to be times where the charger didn't work for a person while brushing their teeth. So, over time, I was able to purchase two sets of toothbrushes at the nearby wholesale store at a discount. The sets included two toothbrush bases in one box. But the problem that was created wasn't usual. I now had four electric toothbrushes on my bathroom double sink, which created a cluttered mess. We thought about putting them in a cabinet but was concerned that the kids would forget to brush their teeth and that they wouldn't dry properly.
Customizing An Acrylic Makeup Organizer in a DIY Toothbrush Holder for the family
So, I went to my nearby favorite discount store, Marshalls, and looked through all the acrylic makeup holders. The unit needed to be washable and needed wide enough openings to hold everything like a soap dispenser, four electric toothbrushes, two tubes of toothpaste, flossers, and cups. And this is what I found. The centerpiece was larger so it could hold my hubby's and my toothbrushes and the tubes of toothpaste.
I purchased some clear letters and affixed them to the different areas. Then labeled the back sections with my family's initials.
Tip: To create a straight line, cut a piece of painter's tape, affix the tape to where you want the bottom of the letters to start. Then, add the letters above the tape. Press the letters firmly to the acrylic organizer. Then remove the tape. Walla, labels that are straight. =)
I also purchased a soap dispenser from Marshall's that would fit in the opening. It looks great! What do you think? Even our flossers can stand up in the sections. They fall over a bit, but they don't fall out, so I am OK with that. The cost for this entire makeover was $16.00. Yes, $16.00. It's worked pretty well to clear off the double sink in the bathroom.
Let's continue the conversation: Did you create something to hold your toothbrushes? Please share below. I would love to hear what you did to improve your bathroom sink organization.
