Kids are nasty. Everyone knows that. Their bathroom is just as nasty. I shudder when I go in there. Well, my kids both have electric toothbrushes. They don’t fit in normal toothbrush holders, so they are always laying on the counter. I’ve found them on the floor on more than one occasion, even in that spot between the sink and the toilet and behind the trash can. You know the spot. I’ve been trying to come up with something to keep them contained and I finally figured it out.
This was super easy to make. The hardest part was finding the right clips to hold the toothbrushes. First, I tried regular broom clips that a broom handle pops in and out of. It didn’t hold the brushes very well though. I bought these clips and they worked like a charm.
I cheated on this one and used a store bought piece of wood. I gave it a light coat of paint with Martha Stewart acrylic craft paint in Blue Sky. I wanted a slightly distressed look, but didn’t want to take the time to sand it, so I went really light on the paint. Totally worked. I screwed the clips in and it was good! Super easy.
Hung it up and it’s been great! They’ve kept their toothbrushes on it and it’s slightly eliminated the counter mess.
