DIY Bathtub Spa Shelf
You will need:
(4) 2 1/2" wood screws
Start by measuring your bathtub. I always put my head on the far end and I wanted everything I needed within arms reach. My tub is shaped a little narrower in the front and wider in the back but it's the same size along the outside. I knew that we needed the length to be 36". On our tub, it hung just over the edges.
Once the large board is cut, cut two smaller boards from your 2x2's. These boards will be underneath your shelf to help keep the board from sliding side to side and falling into the water. It will allow it to still go back and forth, moving it where you need it in your bathtub.
You can take this time to bevel the edges and cut them on the diagonal so that your shelf looks nicer.
Once your edges are cut, use a file to file down the edges and make them smooth. You could also use sandpaper.
Two screws on either side hold the boards in place. Remember, make sure you have measured the inside of your tub so that your boards will fit just inside of the interior of your bathtub.
Once the construction was complete, I used stain to finish the board. I used a stain that has the sealer in it to save me time and make sure my stain was sealed from water.
After drying overnight your DIY bathtub spa shelf is ready to use!
You can never have too many candles! The Mind & Body Collection by Chesapeake Bay Candle is the perfect candle to have on hand for relaxing your mind and letting you hit the pause button on life for a bit.
It's widely known that there are strong associations between emotion and scent, certain scents stimulate our brains and can affect our mood in a positive way. The Chesapeake candle does just that with hints of scents that aren't over powering but that will calm the mind and offer relaxation and clarity.
I actually love the reflection + clarity candle for a soft sea salt sage scent and I love that it's in a blue jar because it reflects everything that takes me to my happy place on the beach. I burn the joy + laughter quite often because I love it's soft fruity scent and when it's lit, the glow of the pink glass is simply beautiful!
When you burn candles that contain essential oils like the Chesapeake Bay candles do, you will leave your bath feeling refreshed, renewed and ready to take on the next task on your to do list because your mind will be clear, calm and ready to focus.
A reed diffuser is the perfect addition to the kids bathroom. Not only does it smell good it also helps provide a calming environment for them. The bathroom is such a hub of activity for my kids. They can use all the calming soothing help they can get! I use the reflection + clarity reed diffuser set in their bathroom. It's a great way to start and end their day with quiet contemplation that the diffusers oils provide.
I love that the Chesapeake Bay candles are very reasonably priced as well and all of them come with beautiful wooden lids that make them perfect for gifting. The medium candle retails at only $10 with a burn time of 24 hours, the large candle is $15 and has a burn time of 50 hours and the reed diffuser set can be purchased for $20.
The bathtub spa shelf can also double as a bench if you need to sit on it. You can use it to soak your feet or shave your legs in comfort!
