Before the transformation, it was very plain and the back of the cabinet was a little scratched up.
I had been storing our medicine in our medicine cabinet in our bathroom until I saw Jen's post at IHeart Organizing on storing medication. I had no idea that the bathroom is probably the worst place to store medication. So since reading her great post, I have moved our medication to a hallway closet.
I decided to change it up a little by adding scrapbook paper to the back of the cabinet. I ended up using three of the same patterned scrapbook paper sheets across the cabinet to add color all the way across. I held the paper to the cabinet using glue dots. I made sure that I could hide the ends and seems of the paper behind the shelves.
I'm hoping to update our bathroom in the next year so the color scheme will be changing. If I was needing a longer solution, I thought about laminating the paper or trying wallpaper instead. But since this is a temporary solution, hopefully the scrapbook paper holds up. I'm worried the scrapbook paper may not hold up from the humidity in the bathroom. I've had the paper up for about 2 weeks now and everything seems to be staying in place!
Another thing that needed a spruce up was the Q-Tip container. Before, I just put our Q-Tips in a clear plastic container.
I decided to add a scrap of the medicine cabinet scrapbook paper inside the container to make it a little prettier.
Much better! The cabinet now has some personality. Since I only attached the paper with glue dots, it will be very easy to change in the future if the paper gets ruined or I change the bathroom color scheme.
Do you have items in your house you have spruced up with scrapbook paper?
