A couple of months ago I moved into my first house. I didn't really pay that much attention to this area of my bathroom, but now that I"m trying to smooth out the rough edges on the place, I'd really like to know what the heck this would be used for?
It's right up next to the bathtub, fairly low to the ground. It sits right in front of the toilet. It's too shallow for holding toilet paper rolls. I can't for the life of me figure out the intended purpose. Since there used to be a phone jack in the bathroom (that I recently covered with drywall because it was ugly), we guessed that you could maybe put a phonebook in there? (sitting on it's spine), but that seems like the least logical place to put a phonebook.
Anyone know what it might be for? The house was built in the mid 1990s.
