Solving one problem in the house

One problem I had in my bathroom was storing the toilet bowl cleaner.  See I use the Scotch Brite Toilet Scrubber and it use to just lay on the floor (it would always fall after I leaned it up on the wall) by my toilet.

Sorry I didn't put the lid down!

This drove me mad every time I walked into the bathroom.  But then when I was home in bed after surgery I looked up at this.....

Those were some of the flowers I got at the hospital.  The big bouquet was from my next door neighbor.  But what caught my eye was the vase it came in.  It was the exact green color used in my bathroom.  Hmmm.... wouldn't it be just right to hold my toilet scrubber??

From an empty vase to a useful holder... who knew?

Again excuse the toilet lid...I didn't realize I
hadn't put it down.

As I look closely at this picture, I can see the paint chips near the baseboard from where I used some harsh cleaners.  I also really wore off the metal finish on the water line.  Hopefully we will be working on the bathroom this summer so I can replace some things and use better, less harsh, cleaners!!
