What To Do With Built-in Soap Dishes

If you live in an older home or apartment and haven't renovated your bathroom, chances are you're stuck with the old tile soap and toothbrush holders. That's what happened to me. Four times. Yes, this is our fourth house and every bathroom had these terrible tile soap dishes! 

I never use them for their intended use--they are impossible to keep clean and things begin looking pretty grimy after a week or so. So, I came up with lots with ideas to make them look good while keeping them functional--like these...
Treat it as a little shelf and display coral or beautiful sea shells.

It's the perfect place for a clock to keep you on time on busy mornings.

Sometime I stack handmade soaps that look beautiful and smell great.

Sherry, from Young House Love had the same idea.

A small bowl is handy for keeping floss and a nail brush close at hand.

Candles? Jewelry? What do you use your soap dish for?
