Storage: vintage medicine box

12 March 2012


Ok, so this isn't strictly a beauty storage post, but it is still handy and useful. Before getting Max, I knew I needed to get myself a secure box of some sort that could hold my pills such as contraception, ibuprofen, paracetamol and allergy tablets etc safely..I didn't want to run the risk of him getting his little jaws round them! Before that, I had just put them in one of the lower drawers in my bedside table, but I wanted to be extra sure he couldn't get near them. Cue my lovely new medicine box. Like I've mentioned before, my room is shabby chic and this box fits in nicely. It's a metal tin with a vintage style french print on the front of it. The lid lifts on and off and it's a perfect size to fit your small bits and bobs in. 


I guess you could use this tin for beauty items. I just loved the print on the front and knew it was perfect for what I needed. I bought it from eBay for about £2 I think which is an absolute bargain. You can buy the same box here.
