One of the projects I was determined to figure out was our linen closet. It has always had a weird smell to me and it's been a mess since we moved in a year ago. Ideally I would like to replace the shelves and line the walls with cedar but I don't have the time or energy for that kind of project right now. The biggest issue was the fact that the shelves were painted poorly to where the paint dried all drippy and then the previous owners tried to cover it up with rubber liners. They are the kind of shelf liners that feel sticky to the touch because they are made to keep things from sliding around and they stink something terrible. Although my husband says he's never noticed the smell.
After I separated out all the medication and figured out how much room it would take up I got some materials to recover the shelves.
Once all the shelves were recovered I finished organizing the medicine and labeling all the containers. Then I put everything back in neatly.
- First Aid
- Pain & Stomach
- Allergy, Mouth & Cold
- Supplements & Skin
- Ears, Nose, Throat & Mouth
- Pain & Fever

There is also a container labeled Travel that has all the small travel size bottles and toiletries in it.
