Recently when I googled the words “Pretty Medicine Cabinet” I began to think that perhaps those two words together just might be an oxymoron.
I also loved Martha Stewart’s idea of lining a BATHROOM cabinet with galvanized steel and using magnet backed tins to organize hair supplies.
But where were the images of a pretty MEDICINE cabinet? Like with aspirin? Am I the only one who has a need for Benadryl on occasion? This was the closest I came. An image of a Civil War era medicine chest. Hmmmmm. Ok.
I mean I have been decanting my olive oil and dish soap in the kitchen for awhile now.
Ditto for the bath oils near my tub.
Since ancient times people have been storing their everyday essentials in various vessels. But we can thank the Victorian’s for elevating the practice to the pretty (and possibly crazy) level.
So this then led me to think about liquor decanter labels. I know…my mind works strangely. Can’t help it. It also on occasion sings “Brandy, you’re a fine girl…”
So I bring you my medicine makeover.
Now I know that a pretty medicine cabinet is not for everyone. Particularly homes with small children where such bottles could be a safety issue. But perhaps this post will provide you with inspiration to create your own idea of a pretty cabinet.
