I started with a few items for the end of the bench - but the dated 'housekeepers box' was annoying me. I wanted something a little more rustic. So after much searching online, I found a suitable basket at Early Settler. While slightly larger than I need, I really like the colour and the way it obscures the unattractive detergent bottles yet keeps them close to hand for when required.
I also bought a little soap dish, but in retrospect I am not sure I like it there. Never mind - with 5 handbasins around the house I am sure I can find somewhere for it to live ;)
So here's a quick before and after. I'm quite pleased!
Before - housekeeper's box was not doing it for me
Much happier with a wicker basket in that spot
