Medicine cabinet shelves

Any ideas on shelves for the medicine Chest in the bathroom? With some pics? That is a lot of wasted space.

Never added shelves to the medicine cabinet itself, but did add some between the mc and the shower wall and one on the curved wall.

The bathroom inside walls are wood and yes I used wood screws.

closet shelves

Walt also put shelves in the closet by the door. We found this works better than having a coat/broom closet.

1/4 inch birch plywood, mounted on adjustable brackets from Lowes.
Used #6 by 3/8 inch wood screws to secure.
Stain the wood to match cabinet.
the brackets show in some of the pictures so you can get a better idea of how they attach. I can move them if I need too.

Not being that great at building things, I solved the medicine cabinet problem using two over-the-door wire shelves (got from CampingWorld). There's a tall and a short shelf on each one and they fit such that there is still room for items in the base of the cabinet, so I essentially have three shelves on each side.

What I'm trying to figure out now is the 'hole' under the counter. I have two wire baskets there now, but it's not particularly convenient getting thing in and out of them.

I find that space perfect for extra packages of TP and a box of Kleenex.

These are all great mods! I've been asking Cowboy Bob to figure out how to make the closet into a pantry by adding shelves. Il. Have to make sure he sees these pics! Thank you!

I installed a small wire spice rack inside the medicine cabinet to create additional shelf space and hold small pill bottles.
