Medicine Cabinet Organization.

The first spring cleaning project I decided to tackle was my medicine cabinet. It’s a great project to start with because you can clean it out and organize within an hour. I’ve always just thrown everything haphazardly into a little basket I had in there and then I could never find a hair tie when I needed one or there was toothpaste all over everything. So I cleaned it out…

Before & After.
Here are a few tips:
-Take everything out and give it a thorough cleaning.
-Throw out things that you don’t use!
-Find a different place for things that you don’t use regularly. We have another drawer in our bathroom for things like bandaids, extra toothbrushes, etc. so I put some items that I don’t use often in there.
-Find some small jars to help organize. If you have a metal back to your medicine cabinet buy some magnets to help with storage. (See DIY floral magnets down below.)

What you’ll need:
Magnets, fabric, ModPodge, scissors, pencil, and a paintbrush.

How to do it:
Trace magnet on back side of fabric. Cut out the magnet shape. Use ModPodge to stick fabric on the magnet. Done!
*For the vintage spool, I just hotglued a magnet to the back. It works perfectly for hair ties.

    Rad. Your medicine cabinet is so minimalistic. It is tidy and spacious.

    Lovely post. Found you via Pinterest. Where did you find your magnets? I have magnet tape that I use for my bobby pins, but it would never hold the larger metal items.ReplyCancel
