Suitcase Medicine Cabinets

Suitcase Medicine Cabinets

Let's face it, medicine cabinets in the bathroom can be downright boring. Most are a total snooze fest and we're all just sitting back and letting it happen. Believe me, I'm not one for super quirky design (I wish I could dump a can of white paint over my entire house) but I do think there's something that can be done to give the medicine cabinet a bit of a face lift.

I came across this funky yet fabulous suitcase medicine cabinet on the Turkish website, Limitsiz Enerji. I've talked about how important it is to reuse goods so we can all stop being so wasteful and plus, suitcases make excellent home accessories — so why not throw one on the wall and call it a medicine cabinet?

The trick is to find a smaller suitcase or better yet, a briefcase. You can easily add shelves with pieces of reclaimed wood or head down to your local hardware store and have pieces of wood cut to the measurements of the case. I love the look of keeping the wood natural (or even with a dark stain) but there's always the option of upholstering them to match the interior fabric of the case. Attach the case to the wall and add a mirror to the front of the case so it's functional both inside and out.

What do you think of suitcase medicine cabinets?
