Our story begins in a little house that was built in the 1950's. She is a cute little house with many of her original features still in tact. Her bathrooms still have the original scary lighting with 1 little 2 prong plug in the light fixture, but some of her better features are clean line little medicine cabinets. From the outside they are simple mirrors and in good shape. The inside however...uhhh. After some scrubbing and cruising for ideas on Pinterest I decided to give one of our cabinets a little face lift. Here are her dirty guts pre cleaning.
|This little sticker is on the inside of the door. Kinda cool so I left it.|
|I don't know what this is all about, but there is a hole above an old razor blades sticker. Do you drop the old blades in the hole and let them accumulate in the wall? I guess one never knows when their going to need to cut a bitch.|
|Some of her "flaws" could not be removed from the bottom shelf, but it was well scrubbed. Anyway, I did this as el cheapo as possible. A trip to JoAnn Fabric and Craft and 2 sheets of .59 cent scrapbook paper became my "wall paper". I used ATG to affix it to the back wall. It worked like a charm!|
|I really wanted something with a nice graphic pattern, but it all seemed a bit to fussy so I went with this orange for a pop of color and it has a nice faux linen texture to it.|
|TADA! Much better! Sorry the photo's aren't better, there is no natural light in the bathroom so some photos I even used the flash...I really hate the flash!|
|As for the rest of the items, the top shelf is where I keep 3 of my 4 pairs of glasses...I don't do contacts so a girl must have options. Along with the q-tips there is a bar of French milled soap in Shea Butter. It smells up the entire cabinet, I love it! The second shelf is a bottle of Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise Blue. It smells very clean and sort of soapy, I like my perfume to smell soapy instead of spicy or to floral. There is a little tin of Burts Bees Res-Q Ointment, great for bumps and bruises. And some goop from Suave that is supposed to de-frizz but I won't link it because I don't think it works. And lastly the bottom shelf. As mentioned I have frizz issues so here is my straightening brush and a wide tooth comb for my super curly hair, yes I'm a curly girl and if you're a curly girl read this book...it's AMAZING!|
My cabinet and I shall live happily ever after. I may tackle the one in the big bathroom with the "man stuff" in it soon.
