A rubber stamp holder (a flea market steal for $1!!) repurposed to hold old medicine bottles and band-aid tin box, vintage tissue ads, and my favorite find: old inkwells displaying vintage razor blades. 
From a well bucket as a trash can, to a $5 step stool flea market find (and the paint was already grungy!!), along with medicine bottles and so on, I had so much fun putting this together!
Again flea market deals just cant be beat! I took corks I had on hand and stained them with instanst coffee and antiquing gel to make them fit the old feel of the bottles. The candles are beeswax ones MWHP (My Wonderful Hubby Phil) made. I love the antqiue bath thermometer - it shows cool, tepid and warm for bathwater.
I raided my scrapbooking supplies for my Ms shadowboxes. I used my favorite go-to paper aged dictionary pages (using my favorite antiquing medium: instant coffee!)
Another project help from MWHP (My Wonderful Hubby Phil). A soap pump from an old blue mason jar - I know it looks green - I used food coloring with the soap to get the glass to go green. Phil found pumps and collars for these soap pumps at: onedreamdesign.com.

When my Christmas decor came down in our powder room, I didn't really want to put back up the old decor. What better excuse then to do a junk re-do!!

JunkArchitect writes: The rubber stamp holder is perfect for holding all your vintage drugstore relics. I love reading the old labels. You could clear up anything back then with a good liniment. Although it's NEVER good when an ailment requires ointment. I'm getting off track here...might need a shot of the stuff in the brown bottle.
