Creativity is fantastic for projects, and even more so when it comes to organizing a space with challenges. I’ve been a huge fan of using whatever space I can claim for storage, especially here in our house with small and awkward rooms. Our master bath isn’t so small but with the open shelf vanity, I didn’t give myself much room for storage. Today’s creative bath wall organization project helps organize my makeup and gives me storage options that I can easily move around and change in the future if my needs change.
Creative bath wall organization supplies
Say Hello to Calleo, the customizable storage I’m using for my new makeup station. It’s available exclusively at Target. It comes in different finishes with several options for baskets, hooks and more. I’m loving the flexibility that the hooks can also be mounted directly on walls too. Once the rail is installed onto the wall, the individual pieces just slide onto the rail. How easy is that?
Supplies needed for a DIY makeup station
- Calleo Rail
- Calleo baskets, hooks or both
- tape measure
- painters tape – optional see tip # 2
Seriously, this is a 15 minute project. Gather your supplies and start getting excited about the new creative bath organization you are about to create.
Creative bath wall organization tips
#1. Choose a wall space that is convenient to reach and still out of the way of cords, moving elbows, etc.
#2. Use the right hardware for the job so your storage will hold the items you need it to hold. Drywall anchors are great for drywall and come in several weight choices or install the rails directly into wood studs. Installing a Calleo rail or any two-holed item is easy if you place painters tape on the back of the rail and make a mark on the tape through the screw holes. Next, place the tape on the wall and use the level to adjust it as needed for straightness. Voila, perfectly placed, straight screws!
#3. Save space by using containers to hold items like q-tips and makeup brushes in the wall baskets. Put the bulky boxes in the closet and refill as needed.
#4. Place the items you use most often where they are easy to reach.
#5. Make your storage area pretty. You are more likely to use it and start new habits if it’s fun, easy and pretty to use:)
#6. Keep your bath wall organization station neat and tidy. Periodically weed out what isn’t necessary. Don’t let extra items clutter up your pretty space and organized makeup station.
I’m loving my new makeup station so much I may go pick up another rail for more baskets!
Calleo is available exclusively at Target Stores.

You controlled the counter clutter of a bathroom in a flash. Thanks for the great ideas on how to keep the clutter under control.
Hi Karen & thank you! It looks so much better now and the clutter is no longer an issue:) Thanks so much for your visit!

This is a great idea, I’m thinking of doing something similar above our kitchen sink for our soap and sponges! We would be really excited to have you at our link party called To grandma’s house we go!
Hi Tarahlynn & thank you:) This would be an awesome solution for a sink area. The rails and baskets are sturdy too so they’ll hold up well over time. Thanks so much for your visit!
This is a perfect way to organize all those little things in the bathroom! I forgot how gorgeous your bathroom was! XO
Hi Christy and thank you! Yes, the little items go renegade on me and pile up everywhere. This little shelf has been perfect for keeping them neatly in order and easy to find too! Thank so much for your visit!
What a great way to organize!!! Love it, thanks for sharing
Hi Kim, Thank you:) It’s been nice having the things I need organized and easy to reach. I should have done this a long time ago. Thanks so much for your visit!
Jen C says
What a great idea to use these in the bathroom for keeping smaller items organized and within easy reach!
Hi Jen, I could use more of these in other areas, it’s worked out so well. Plus, it’s been nice not having to dig around for the smaller items I need when I’m in a hurry in the morning. Thanks for your visit!
This is perfect for organizing just about any area in your home. Our bathrooms are tiny and I could use a few of these baskets on my wall.
Hi Paula and thank you! Our other bathrooms are small too, it’s such a challenge to organize anything in them. I’d bet you’d do something really pretty with a set of these:) Thanks so much for your visit!

This is a terrific idea and looks so wonderful mounted to the wall. So happy I saw this post! will be getting a few of these for my baths. Susie from The Chelsea Project
Hi Susie …We love ours..or I should say I love mine since I’ve monopolized them:) I know you’d make a pretty wall organization station too. Thanks so much for your visit!
I actually have TOO much storage space in my bathroom which can also lead to major clutter!
But I can see this system useful for other areas of my home including my bedroom–yep it would be perfect behind the door to hang my clothes that are not dirty, and ready for that second wear…. currently they live on a chair, or quilt rack. NOT good!
great tips Wendi!
Hi Gail! That’s a good point that too much room creates clutter too. I have 2 more really small bathrooms here, we can trade! LOL. I’m loving my new organization and bet you would find Calleo pieces you love too. Thanks so much for your visit!
Marie from The Interior Frugalista says
I have so little counter space and drawer storage in the master bathroom and a system like this would work well. I like how you used clear glass in yours. Hmmm, something to think about!
Hi Marie! Using clear glass made the space look even more clutter-free and open. You’d love this system, especially if you don’t have much counter or drawer space like me. Thanks so much for your visit!

That is a great way to organize your makeup, Wendi. I can definitely use some sort of system. My kids have their makeup strewn all over the place.
Hi Mary & thank you! This is such a good way to keep things off the counters. I remember what those days were like when my daughters had loads if cosmetic items. The stuff everywhere was overwhelming! Thanks so much for your visit!
Beautiful, I love it!
Hi Ivory & thank you! Funny how something so small can make such a big impact in a room…and my organization too! Thanks so much for your visit:)
Wow those look great, and the thing is you could use those in a closet an office, garage, craft room, just so much you could do with these. I’m definitely looking into this. Thanks so much Wendi.
Hi Patty! Thanks… I needed some easy organization, my makeup area was out of control. I’ve thought of several places where I could use more of these cute baskets and rails. Hope you find a good use for some yourself:) Thanks so much for stopping by!
