Squeeze in more storage over the toilet with this hack

Over the toilet storage unit

Items Used: 26.5 inch wide Ikea Bookcase found free on Craigslist, Hook from my toolbox.

My goal was to incorporate some storage in a very small bathroom in my condo. I found the bookcase for free on Craigslist and figured I would try to hack it for a storage unit.

I kept the back panel off of the bookcase, but you could cut the back panel to fit to the middle shelf if you want a back panel. I also did not use the bottom shelf since this unit sits over the toilet. I used all other shelves. The affixed middle shelf was the perfect height to go over the toilet tank. I had a hook in the toolbox and installed it to hold the hand towel; again for free.
