This is a short little post on a little bitty thing. But sometimes those updates are the most fun, so I’m sharing anyhow. I’m loving the new bathroom, but still having a minor issue.
That. Not just the part where it isn’t the tidiest, but the part where I can’t actually see things in there very well. My old medicine cabinet had a white interior, and I could see things in it. This one? Not so much. When I wash my face or brush my teeth I put my hair back in a headband and ponytail, so I leave those two things in there. Both are black. They’re on the bottom shelf. See them?
Yeah, me either.
I can lean all the way over and look close and I still can’t see them half the time, and it was driving me nuts.
The surface is also wood, and I worried that drippy toothbrushes and the like would hurt the wood eventually.
Enter the Target placemat:
Which I cut into:
And then emptied out the cabinet:
And plopped it in (ok, so I measured too):
Now can you find my headband?
Yep, me too! (It’s just to the left of the toothbrushes). If the mat gets dirty or sticky or anything, I can just pull it out and wash it off, leaving my medicine cabinet like new and me able to find my headband at 6 am!
This isn’t my first Target placemat use–I have a couple in my kitchen for things like the bottom of the baking pan cabinet and underneath oils. Super easy, cleans up and if it gets too dirty I can just toss it out and my cabinets will be none the worse for wear! They cost about $2 and although the designs change, they always seem to have these in stock.
Do you line your medicine cabinet? Ever used a placemat for an unconventional purpose?
