In preparation for my Ikea Expedit hack, I first de-cluttered and re-organized (and dusted! Eegads) the shelves. My beloved Shelley sugar bowl was not re-united with her Expedit friends, but I found her a new purpose in life: holding soap.
My secret for avoiding soggy soap? I snagged the little “drain rack” from my legitimate soap dish.
It is a teeny, tiny pop of additional colour. Microscopic, really, but it makes me happy!
|Ignore the ugly outlet that STILL needs to be replaced.|
And I have officially eradicated soap dishes from the townhouse. One half bath has a pottery dish made by a young artist from my hometown, the other has a find from West Elm. I don’t know what I have against traditional soap dishes – I think I just like the opportunity to display something more unusual in a small space like a bathroom.
