DIY Bath Shelf

Good Morning!

I hope ya’ll are having an awesome Tuesday so far! Can we take a moment to say that bath time is so important? There are few things more relaxing than grabbing your epsom salts, a glass of wine, filling your tub with piping hot water and just… being.

For those of you who relax in the bath frequently, this handy dandy bath shelf- which I am going to teach you how to make- will be a game-changer.

Let’s do it!

What you need:

  • 1 plank of wood [I used pine that was ~9.5″ wide and X” long (the width of your tub)]
  • Minwax wood stain (I used English Chestnut)
  • Paint brush
  • Rag (to wipe away excess stain)
  • Paint blanket
  • Screw gun
  • 1/8″ drill bit
  • 2 cabinet pulls
  • Tape measurer



1.) Measure the width of your bath tub

2.) Go to your local hardware store and purchase a plank of wood and have the store cut the wood to your desired length

3.) Paint your piece of wood with the stain and wipe away the excess stain. Let dry outside (or in an area of good ventilation).

4.) Once your wood is dry, grab your gun, drill bit, tape measurer and cabinet pull. Take the width of your piece of wood, subtract the width of the cabinet pull and divide by two. This will tell you how far you measure in the pull. For this project, I put the handles 3″ deep from the length and 3 1/8″ in from the width.

5.) Flip your board upside down and screw in the screws that come with the cabinets pulls. On the top side, screw on your handles and relax!
