You’re probably going to think this is silly but, I’m going to tell you anyway:
One of the first things I did when I moved in to my apartment two years ago was decorate the inside of my medicine cabinet. At the time I don’t think I had curtains or a TV, and yet for some reason decorating this small space was at the top of my list.
(Quick, before I show you the inside, here's a view from the outside to help you get a sense of the weird three-door-ness that is my medicine cabinet...until I own my own place, I just have to put up with some rental weirdness like this...sigh.)
And here's a peek at the decorated inside (a view with all three doors open):
Here’s what I did:
1. I lined the inside with pretty teal patterned contact paper (which I got at Home Depot for around $10). I’m not sure they sell this exact contact paper anymore, but here are some other cool contact paper options I came across on Amazon.com:
|Contact Paper, 18" x 24' Water Dance|
2. I scrounged up a vintage mason jar to hold cotton balls and a teacup to hold my toothbrush and the squirley almost-all-gone tube of toothpaste that won’t stand up on it’s own anymore. (Actually, my mom got me both the mason jar and the teacup at a yard sale, but in case your mom isn’t quite that cool, you’re not totally out of luck- try washing out the glass jar your jam or tomato sauce came in- seriously, most Classico tomato sauce comes in jars that are really kinda cute, they even say “Mason” on the side.
3. I glued up a “Good Mornin’ Sunshine” doodle. Not only is the doodle cute, it’s extra special because my friend Mara drew it for me right before she moved back to Texas a year and a half ago. (I really miss her, and though I haven’t been the best about keeping in touch- I hope she knows I still think about her all the time- hi Mara!)
