Taking a shower in the dead of winter may sound crazy but not if you have all the comforts. I needed shelving for my outdoor shower space to store towels and soaps. So I added floating box shelves. They are inexpensive to make and very versatile. Not only do these storage boxes look nice, but they are very easy to build. You can make a combination of different sizes and depths. They are perfect for any space.
I know its in the middle of winter in most of the U.S, but here in South Carolina, we still get temperatures in the 70’s. (Don’t hate me for it.) Last week we had a week of warm weather and I was able to use my shower after a workout. I love taking showers outside it may be unconventional but don’t knock it until you try it. It truly feels invigorating.
- Cedar Planks
- Miter Saw
- Liquid nails
- Mini cabinet nails.
Steps to Make the Storage Boxes
I chose three different sizes, 12 by 12, 14 by 14 and 22 by 16. The cedar planks are super easy and lightweight to work with. I used a miter saw to cut the measurements. Make sure you use a level when cutting the dimensions.
Fasten four sides with liquid nails, I added some masking tape to hold the ends together.
With tini cabinet nails I hammered the ends together as in the picture. Hammer lightly to give the shelving the extra support it will need.
I did not want anything bulky or heavy when choosing the wood. I choose Cedarsafe planks because I love the red cedar against the white wood in the shower enclosure. It’s eco-friendly and smells good. The box contains 15 square feet. You can get them at Homedepot.
