When i started wet shaving a little over a year ago, I took over out little en suite in the bedroom

While not the biggest or most extravagant, it's become my area and my wife is OK with it. The kids love using the "Men's Room" and that is where they have their "fun shaves".

I'm a big music, vinyl and rock poster (silk screen) lover, hence the PJ Silk Screen from the last time I saw them in my city.

Here are a few shots of it.

I like it. Why didn't I think of using a cigar box. I have thrown away a great number of very nice cigar boxes over the years. Now I'm really going to piss my wife off. Not only do I have to tell her I'm getting ready to order a new Simpsons brush, I have to tell her I'm going to buy a box if cigars.Smile

a work buddy made those for me. he's a FP guy (and also the guy who got me hooked on DE), so had made some lined ones and gave a few to me. i think he just adds a strofoam block under to raise it up to the appropriate level, then cuts a piece of the corrugated felt for pen boxes and voila.

i have a few for pens too Biggrin

Great looking nook. I like the wall-mounted brush holder & the razor holder you show by the sink.

thanks guys. the "razor holder" is a fancy tooth brush holder i also found in our closet, and claimed before my wife could notice. Cool

Fantastic den Bruce. As soon as I finish demolishing my 70's theme bathroom, i'm using this den as inspiration!

I daren't let my wife see this thread. If she knows this is what's going to happen to me within a year both my computer and my razor will be thrown out. She'll try to "nip it" as Barney Fife said. Biggrin

That's a mighty fine collection you have there!

Wow! I like it. You did manage your RAD to a more than reasonable limit.

What Floid product is that in the can on the sink. I think I see 2 Queen Charlotte Soaps. I have Vostok and really like it, nice and cold.. What are the 2 you have like/

as for the razors, i've settled on 3 for rotation: Feather AS-D1, BRW Bull Progress and BRW OC. the others don't get used very much, if at all

the 1 QCS are Tangering and the LE Briar (my favorite)
