mini-project: paper-lined cabinet

Last week I was inspired by this image that Rene featured in her pretty storage post.

I instantly thought, how easy would this be?! Rene showed how simple it was when she lined her closet with wrapping paper. Wrapping paper! No need for fancy wallpaper and booking and paste and painstaking hanging. Just some simple wrapping paper and poster tape.

So why hadn't I already done this in my dark, uninspiring medicine cabinet?



Well, I did. And it makes everything look better!


So much better! I could have chosen something brighter, but there's a new black-and-white theme going on in my bathroom now. And it's all coming together, with the addition of this great ticking stripe wrapping paper from Target. I've got a few more projects to finish this room. But for now I'm a very happy girl.

Woot! Love this and now I want to do the same thing. I'm telling you, it's the little things that make the biggest difference. No?

I'm giggling with happiness here. And running off to see what paper I can line the back our our medicine chest with, because yours looks so great.

Ticking stripe. I think it is my favorite of all patterns these days.

That's a great way to make a simple closet more interesting than it already is. Another good thing about it is, closet owners need not spend a lot on this improvement. A very economical way to brighten up dark cabinets!
