Bathroom Commodities

Standard

I’d like to say comestibles, but, unless you are one given to eating soap, it would be rather misleading.

I’ve ordered in many a printed packet of 50s style goodies to dress up here and there on shelves.

On the ‘to make’ list: some glass shelving and a wall cupboard (possibly mirrored) to hold them and, as one who is always resistant to splashing out on single items, I thought I’d have a go at making a bath tray or caddy as I couldn’t find one that didn’t seem rather out of my league for price.

Also in need of a laundry box of the hard wooden kind with a cork top

On the ready made or almost ready list: a wall mirror, a bath mat, towel rail and some wall tiling in strategic places.

There’s a possibility of some slippers, I have a fancy for a liberty bodice airing somewhere and for it to air I think I need a hanging rack but not sure about that yet.

Started with the bath tray as a new year challenge as ideas of how possibly to attack it were bouncing around.

However, although still knobbly, when it is loaded it up it may just past muster

I gave it white mock rubber handles and when parked on the bath and with you eyes half closed it might do the job

While I was cutting up mini bits of soap, I made a bar of Imperial Leather hand soap for the wash-hand basin. 
It should be creamy in colour but I have tried to make the ‘pillow’ shape cut of the edges.
