Need a quick opinion on bathroom outlet placement (please take a look at pics)

I'm installing my one and only electrical outlet in a very small bathroom. I plan on putting a shelf above the pedestal sink, and I'm wondering if the outlet should be placed above or below this shelf. My options are very limited, please take a look at the pics and let me know what you think. Thanks for your help.

Definitely above. This will be a dedicated 20 amp circuit protected via GFCI, right? And I love those remodel boxes! The let you set the depth after the wall covering is up, in case there is a change in depth for some reason.

Codes prob vary but in SC, you can not have a receptacle directly above a lavatory. It must be outside an imaginary vertical line to the left or right of the sides of the sink. Looks like you are close there.

You could alleviate any problems by putting it on the blocking you have installed rather than on the stud.
