A little medicine chest first aid

My husband brought this old metal first aid cabinet home from a dumpster on a jobsite.
After scrubbing it down, lightly sanding it and sealing it with clear varithane, I added a simple mirror to the front.
I added an old wire heart above the mirror...and repainted the entire inside white to make sure it was a clean, new surface.
The best part of all  is the amount of storage inside! I was able to empty two full drawers of the bathroom vanity! (And that means more room for more stuff!!)

From the junk pile on a construction site to my bathroom wall! This is what a little first aid can do!
