My rental house’s master bathroom seriously lacked storage space, so I bought a simple BILLY bookcase and added a door to make it look nice. However, I still couldn’t find a good way to organize my cosmetics so that they’d all be easily accessible.
Finally, after wandering around the IKEA bath fixtures department, I hit upon inspiration: the GODMORGON set of 3 acrylic storage trays. I purchased two sets of the trays.
For a rack for the trays I used a kitchen cabinet lid organizer rack that I bought at a home goods store. I first used 3M Command Picture Strips to get the initial placement of the rack, plus give it extra stability. Next, my husband drilled eight small holes in the back of the BILLY, two in each corner right next to the rack, through which he then threaded small zip ties to secure the rack to the back of the bookcase.
