Someday/Today: A Salvaged Medicine Cabinet

Give your bathroom a rustic makeover with a found luggage case.  


I would love to remodel my bathroom and use this steel Pharmacy Medicine Cabinet from Restoration Hardware for wall storage. It’s hard to find an industrial looking cabinet and this one looks like it’s straight out of a 19th Century doctor’s office. Love the aged patina and apothecary feel.


I can add some well-traveled flair from a cabinet made from an old suitcase. The owner of the one pictured below has added two shelves, a jewelry drawer and a handy mirror on the front. I love how she even kept the travel tags on the handle. Well-worn leather suitcases can be found in flea markets and garage sales for a steal. I picked up three the other day for one dollar each at different garage sales. Just add a little DIY and you can add some personality to any bathroom. Found on Etsy.
