A New Look For My DIY 3-Tiered Tray and Book Bub

Hello! Did y'all have a nice weekend? I sure did. I bought about 10 new books for my Kindle and read a lot. I think the only things I accomplished one day were reading and changing the wallpaper on my Keurig! #lazy. :) And if you're curious, I changed it to a kind of reddish color, you know, for Valentine's Day. ;) Speaking of books, do y'all know about Book Bub? You can sign up for free and you tell them which genre of books you're interested in and they'll email you daily deals on Ebooks. Most of the books are either free or between $1 - $3. I bought a set of four cozy mysteries the other day for only $1.99! My aunt told my mom and me about this site and we've all bought tons of books from them. You can click HERE to sign up with your email. 

You can even tell them which authors are your favorites and they'll notify you if they get a deal on one of their books. There's a search button where you can search for authors. For some reason, it couldn't find one of my favorite authors, and if that happens, there's a box where you can request them. And you know what? Within 24 hours, they added that author to their site. So cool!

So anyway, today I wanted to share the new look for my DIY 3 tiered tray...



I liked the idea of keeping it in my bathroom and filling it with lots of girly things. :) 

Below is what it looked like back in December when it was decorated for Christmas...



You can click HERE for the tutorial on how I made this for only $15. 

After Christmas, I just kind of plopped it down on the side of my tub and wasn't sure what I would do with it. Then I had the idea of filling it with spa-like items. I also wanted to keep the colors mostly grey and white to match my bathroom.

So, off to Walmart and Target I went. :) I purchased some sea sponges, lotions, wash cloths, soap, a candle, loofah, pumice stone, and a grey scrubber sponge. I was so happy to find a grey one! 

Here are some pics of the top, middle, and bottom trays...



So, the cat soap above was actually purchased at a craft fair last summer. My hubby bought it for me when I wasn't looking and surprised me with it later. :) 



Oh, and I did add some soap we brought home from a hotel stay. Love those little soaps!



That little candle in the fresh cotton scent was only $1.

I also moved my cotton stems into my bathroom. Here are a few more pics...

Below is a little collage I put on IG to show some close ups of a few things. And yep, that's Holly in the bottom right corner. These were taken before I bought the stuff for the trays.

I'm really happy with the new look!




So, I guess that's it. I'll be back soon with my Valentine's Day decor. Hope y'all have a wonderful week!

    I have to check out the book website. Do they sell current books? Bestsellers? I have been on a reading kick, too. One right after the other!!

  10. Hi Lisa, Love this and what a great idea. Your home is gorgeous and I love your rug too. I need some cotton like that. We lived in West Texas and I never got any cotton from the fields.
    Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
