But when you have littles that shower with you, or you're just flat clumsy like me, those pesky shampoo bottles topple off their ledge far too often, and those suckers HURT when they hit your feet! So after quite some pondering, I found a solution that works for the 'dry end' of the shower.
Behold, my newest IKEA Hack - a solution for shower clutter!
After thinking of tons of different options that just won't work, I took some cheap items from IKEA that aren't intended for bathroom use, and re purposed them.
The BYGEL Wire Basket has a drop-in tray with drain holes already, but the hook at the top is for a smaller diameter bar.
I purchased the slightly larger GRUNDTAL Rail because it's the exact length of the end of my shower.
To make the basket fit on the bar, I purchased the GRUNDTAL pack of hooks (or two since I used 2 baskets).
Altogether, I spent about $22 after tax for this setup and I love it! It keeps all our bottles (me, hubby, three kids, and the dogs) and other hygene items all in one place. I used the extra hooks from the second pack to hang some washcloths, puffs, and the drain plug out of reach of the kids. Now they use the lower shelves build into the shower wall for their bath toys!
On a side note, because I'm a dork, I had a first this week! My shampoo and conditioner bottles ran out at the exact same time! I'm 30 and it's the first time that's happened... what's the ratio on that? LOL
