I’ve always wanted a bath tub shelf, but could never quite find the right one… I decided to make my own and headed to a local salvage shop that has an area out the back full of old doors and timber offcuts – a pile of old wood could look like a bunch of trash, but if you keep an open mind, what you seek you may find! I came across an old wooden mantle with the most beautiful greenish patina from layer upon layer (upon layer) of peeling paint.
For awhile I had it on top of my own mantle; it added some really lovely texture and history. Then, all I did was measure the width of my bathtub and took it up to my local hardware store to have it cut to size.
Place it on the edge of your tub and eh, bada boom bada bing! I usually keep mine butted up against the tiled wall that doesn’t have the faucets, then simply move it along when I want to have a bath. I have to say (and you’re probably wondering), YES, it makes the most perfect bath time wine holder of all time.
