A Break from Renos

    There has been a lot less renovations around here lately and it has been making me feel extremely ansy. Zach is working like a crazy person, and I am just wrapping up the fall semester at school so we have been pretty busy. We're hoping to get back on the band wagon soon & build our custom closet organizer. In the mean time I've been trying to re-organize all the things that were unpacked in a haste. And since we're both fighting off colds and have been having a hell of a time finding things in our medicine cabinet I figured it would be a great place to start. You can see the rest of our en-suite transformation here 

Here's the disaster before. Getting up in the middle of the night and trying to find something for your sore throat was just not working with this situation. Talk about medicine chaos.

 After!  I just love when everything has a home. So organizing this looks like an easy feat, but believe me it was not all that peachy. The unique depth of the shelves made it almost impossible to find baskets that would fit properly. So, naturally I made some.  I used some left over vinyl tile that we used in both bathrooms & the foyer entrance. I measured and cut the tile to the box size that I wanted and then hot glued them together, adding some borders for flare ( and to hide all the rough edges).

It didn't seem like quite enough to just put them in baskets, so to make our life just that much easier I put little labels on the fronts ( "Cold" "Aches & Pains" and "Stomach") so we can quickly grab whatever basket we need according to what we're looking for without having to rummage through all of them.

We had 2 half empty boxes of band-aids, why? I'll never know. I threw the uggo boxes out and opted to put our band-aids & things of the like in this cheap-o napkin holder. It just adds a little pretty that a band-aid box never could.

   Yes, I am a freak. But I am pretty sure next time I open our medicine cabinet in the middle of the night with a sore throat, or a head ache it is  going to be blissfully easy to find everything that I need.
