New and Improved Medicine/Vitamin Cabinet

A couple of weeks ago, Graphics Fairy posted this graphic:


I loved the vintage look of it and knew I wanted to use it for something.  Then I thought about the cabinet in my kitchen that stores my vitamins and medicine and I decided that this would be the perfect excuse motivation to get it organized!

Before:


I took these pictures really quickly, but you get the idea.  Mismatched colors, hard to find bottles, nothing pretty about it!

I found these boxes at Michaels for $2.50 a piece


Then, I opened the picture in Photoshop and added some words so I could make labels for my boxes. Next, I printed the labels on card stock.




Then, I simply used double-sided scrapbooking tape to attach the labels to the boxes.




Super easy and makes my cabinet look so much better!

  2. What a fantastic idea! I may have to "steal" your idea. :)

    I have not seen those vintage labels until today. Great labels. I presume the labels are in jpg or png form so you could add text to them in Photoshop?

    Love your idea of adding text to them in Photoshop. I really hate my handwriting, so this would be nice to be able to do with label files I download. :)
