I am repurposing a medicine cabinet into a essential oil cabinet. This will help me get what I need for a little money and a little elbow grease.
Jamie, Lucy and I love to go yard saling. It is one way we all save money. We buy used to use it as is or to repurpose. I have gotten some great things. I got 2 Roombas. Unfortunately the $10 one died but the $5 one is still going strong. I have gotten a few pieces of furniture. Canning jars for all our canning escapades. One of the great things we found was an old 80’s style medicine cabinet. I know you probably think why in the world would you want that.
Well you see, I’ve been needing a cabinet for my essential oils. And I knew I could transform this into the perfect cabinet. This is what the cabinet I started with.
I began with taking it apart and sanding it so the new paint would adhere. Painted it with ??? paint. It took a few coats but now that 80’s look is gone. I removed the glass and replaced it with a wainscot board and painted it with chalkboard paint.
Having the chalkboard on there allows me to write down what oils I need to reorder and new oils I want to try. I can also write down my current favorite diffuser blends.
The cabinet helps me keep all my oils in one place. They tend to get scattered around the house as I use them. This cabinet also helps store oils as they should be – in a dark, cool place. Extended exposure to sunlight and heat can change the composition and evaporation rate of even the purest oil. This will change the effectiveness of the essential oil.
Have you repurposed anything lately? I’d love to see pictures of it.
