We all have that one drawer or closet that makes us cringe every time we look at it. For a lot of people it's their medicine cabinet. Most of us look into our medicine cabinet at least twice a day. It might even be the first thing your eyes see in the morning. In two hours and with $25 here's how to wrangle products and glamorize your medicine cabinet. This little change makes a big difference.


What You'll Need

  • Adhesive spray
  • Magnetic strips
  • Fine heavy paper
  • Picture hangers
  • Towels
  • Basket
  • Doorknob


Tools

  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Hammer

Get Started: Clean, Measure and Organize

Take every last thing out of that cabinet and scrub it down. We all have things in our cabinets that are strange and no longer welcome. Organize all of your products, jewels and hair things into two piles: stuff to keep & stuff to toss.

If you can't find an expiration date use your senses. If a moisturizer feels too tacky or smells funny, toss it.

Take measurements of the inside of the cabinet for the papers to line the back wall and door.

Go out and grab some gorgeous papers to line your cabinet. The fancy heavy wrapping paper at your favorite stationary store will work great, but you can also use wallpaper or contact paper for a more durable install. Cut your papers to fit the back wall spaces on the medicine cabinet.

Apply spray adhesive to back of paper. Press the paper to the back of the cabinet smoothing out bubbles along the way.
