I’ve had this image bookmarked for a while. Photographed in the bathroom of Catherine Dann’s home (which was featured in Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home), this trio of vintage first aid boxes, mounted to the wall, appeals to me on two levels. First, it’s an artful arrangement that adds instant vintage charm to a room. Second, not just decorative, they actually serve a purpose: In a small bath with no medicine cabinet, these metal boxes can provide much-needed storage space.
If you want to re-create the look for your own home, search Etsy and eBay for vintage metal medical kits. And if you like the look of vintage but prefer a new product, consider one of these retro-inspired first aid boxes.
