Now when I open up my medicine cabinet in the morning and see this big burst of color it makes me smile. I keep forgetting it is there so it is like a little surprise every time I open the cabinet. 😉Makeover a medicine cabinet with peel and stick wallpaper!

I didn’t want Ross to miss out on all the fun, so I surprised him with a masculine black cacti print in his medicine cabinet:

Aren’t these patterns so fun? You can find all of Audrey’s collection on Spoonflower and not only do they come in peel and stick wallpaper, but you can order the prints in a variety of fabrics and wrapping paper as well!

I have never wallpapered anything before so I was nervous to try out this project, but the peel and stick wallpaper couldn’t have been easier and it is even repositionable if needed. If you’re like me and haven’t worked with wallpaper before, a medicine cabinet is the perfect low-risk spot to try it out.

Steps for Medicine Cabinet Makeover

Step 1. Empty out cabinet

Clear out all the stuff currently in your medicine cabinet! This is a good opportunity pitch things that are expired or nearly empty.

Step 2: Wipe down cabinet

Give the cabinet a good wipe down with soap and water and let dry completely. I was surprised how dirty my cabinet was – yuck!

Step 3: Remove shelves

If possible, remove the shelves. If yours aren’t removable you can carefully measure and cut smaller pieces of wallpaper to fit between the shelves.

Step 4: Measure and cut wall paper

Carefully measure the inside of your medicine cabinet and cut a piece of wallpaper to fit. I used a rotary cutter, but you could also use scissors in a pinch! Then peel back the top of the wallpaper and line up with the top of the medicine cabinet. Once aligned, start smoothing down the paper moving from the center and pushing outwards. Continue peeling the backing off as you go and smoothing out any air bubbles. There are handy instructions that come with the wallpaper that explain it better than me!

Replace the shelves and your de-cluttered toiletries and you have yourself a medicine cabinet makeover!
