Design Fail, and a Small Recovery...

Sometimes, things just don't work out in real life like they do in your imagination. After my trip to IKEA, I thought I had my sink clutter conquered. By hanging their little storage pod "Asker" under the mirror above the sink, I would effectively create a storage solution as cute as the one in the picture below:
These little pods would be perfect for toothbrushes, etc. I thought I could place three above the sink. For some reason I forgot about a) the tap, and b) the height of the sink/mirror would be crazy high if I did this the way I had envisioned. My husband called me upstairs chuckling when he discovered this (warning: somewhat explicit content, depending how warped your imagination is?):
Err....I could only fit two, and they would "dangle" on either side of the tap.
Oh well, back to the drawing board. On a positive note, however, my cheap-o round IKEA mirror is doing a swell job "softening" the harsh angles of the bathroom, don't you think?

Still a work in progress, but I am pleased! Maybe I will hang the storage pods beside the sink and a shelf above. Hopefully the laundry hamper below it won't make it appear like it is floating in space. What do you think?
