As you may have noticed, I working on decorating my bathroom. This is the third DIY that I have completed for my downstairs bathroom in the last few weeks. I got the idea from a cute ladder from the Four Seasons that blogger, A Grateful Life mentioned in a blog post. This idea came after purchasing the new Softsoap Fresh & Glow Exfoliating Fruit Polish Body Wash and Softsoap Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream Body Wash. I have been keeping all my bathroom items on the floor, and these were just too nice to go on the shower floor.


Softsoap Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream helps you get soft and radiant skin with Milk Protein Almond and Coconut 100% Real Extracts. The benefit of the hydrating is that it is proven to lock-in long-lasting moisture, giving you healthy-looking skin that glows. Softsoap Fresh & Glow Exfoliating Fruit Polish helps with smooth and glowing skin with Apricot Seeds, Orange & Kiwi 100% Real Extracts. Benefits of exfoliating are its unique formula that is packed with apricot seeds that exfoliate, giving you healthy-looking skin that glows.



Since I am sick of putting awesome products on the floor, I decided to build a DIY Shower Caddy. This is a pretty simple design that took me about 2 hours to build. I took breaks because I saw everything by hand so it will take you less if you have a table saw (dying to get one BTW).

Tools & Supplies
One – 2  x 6 – Twelve Foot Treated Wood
Two – 2 x 2 – Ten Foot Treated Wood
Long Outdoor Screws
Electric Drill
Saw (I used a hand saw, buy you can use a table saw or whatever you have)

Start by cutting the thicker wood into two – twelve inch pieces and two – eight inch pieces. With the thinner wood, cut two – four and half foot pieces and six – twelve inch pieces.

Screw four of the thinner twelve inch pieces of wood to the bottom making slits so that water can come through.

Start putting the ladder together by measuring twelve inches from the bottom of the four and half foot pieces and twelve inches from the top. This is where you will add two of the twelve inch pieces as ladder rungs. Screw into both on the top and only on the bottom.


Mark off about 10 inched from the top rung. Lean the ladder against the wall where you will be placing the DIY shower caddy. Take a pencil and mark off where the caddy should angle on the ladder. The caddy should sit against the wall. This is where you get the stabilization for the entire ladder.

Use the drill to put holes in the side of the ladder. Then, screw in 3 long screws on each side.

Screw in the bottom rung and you are all done.


Oh and I bought Softsoap Fresh & Glow Exfoliating Fruit Polish & Softsoap Fresh & Glow Hydrating Shower Cream from Walmart, I found it on an end cap near the cosmetics aisle.

  1. The shower caddy is such a great idea! We have a ledge in our shower, but I don’t like using it for all our things. This would be perfect! #client
