This bathroom wall organizer is actually hung on the wall and is the perfect storage for a smaller bathroom. Even better, it’s a DIY project that can be completed in an hour.
When we bought our house 6 months ago, I started looking for any excuse to build things for the house. I knew I had wanted to do some type of storage for our bathroom that could go on the wall and take away some blank wall space which I hate. So naturally the first place I looked was Ana White and I found the perfect bathroom wall hanging organizer. The original plans can be found here.
What makes this great is it’s easy to put together and looks awesome! If you don’t have some type of saw to make the few cuts that need to be made you can just have someone at Home Depot or Lowes make the cuts for you. For me, I like the industrial look of wood and pipes so this was the perfect project. While Ana White’s design is meant for a bigger bathroom, I needed to downsize it slightly so it could fit in our guest bathroom, so you can change the size around as needed.
This bathroom wall hanging organizer is something that can be done in an hour (more if you stain the wood). So get out there and give this a try. Don’t be afraid to do your own project!

How to Make Bathroom Wall Organizer:
Make all cuts listed above.
If you want you can cut a notch off the top for the two 24″ sides to give it more character but not necessary.
If you’re going to stain the wood, this is the time to do it and sand it down. It can also be painted.
Measure 3/4″ from bottom on each 24″ side and add 8 1/2″ board for shelf. You can do this by countersunk screws on the outside or pocket hole screws on bottom of shelf.
Measure 7 1/2″ from bottom shelf to put in middle shelf. Repeat with top shelf being 7 1/2″ from middle shelf.
Nail 1/4″ x 2″ rails 3/4″ above each shelf with finish nails and glue.
