Default Bathroom storage

I need some help. I have shelves at the end of my tub and I'm looking for storage containers for the inside. The problem I'm having is the size. The size is 6" wide, 6"high and 14"deep. I love the baskets at JoAnns but they don't come in the right size. I have ice cube bins in there now but oh so tacky! I've looked on line for instructions to make them but can't find what I'm looking for. I don't want fabric boxes because that isn't sturdy enough. I've looked at JoAnns, Hobby Lobby, AC Moore, Walmart and online. Any ideas? Thanks all.

The size you want is very close to containers made for CD storage. Found a basket at Ikea that was 15" long but for sale at stores only, not online.

You might want to check the Container Store. They seem to have every size and type of bin imaginable. I found these that might work for you:

Not sure of the size but plastic 'shoe box' containers? Usually a whole $1 each most days at just about anywhere. They are stackable; can label them; easily cleaned.

Nothing wrong with ice cbe bins. If you have a lot of them, they will look intentional.

My first thought too was to make the ice cube bins look cute! Also may want to check places like dollar tree, big lots, dollar stores for odd size containers, baskets, etc.

Yep, just measure or make your own with slats from the home improvement store.

I can't use fabric bins. I need something more sturdy. But thanks.
