When we installed a tall, narrow 13-inch-wide sliver medicine cabinet in our newly renovated and very minimalist bathroom, little did we know that it would do more than provide storage for essential toiletries. The mirror door is backed by white-glazed steel, a perfect “clean slate” to which we could affix signs, reminders and images that would stay out-of-site until the door was opened.
Our trick to easy posting and swapping-out of images: magnets, which we use all over the Laboratory. We love being able to see Brancusi, Miro AND our summary of Dr. John Sarno’s approach to dealing with back (and other) pain. We compiled it years ago from his book Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection. We have kept it in sight for years to view daily and find that it has helped us go from chronically back pain-ridden to an ache once-in-a-blue moon.
Over the years we’ve bought a slew of magnets in different sizes and thicknesses from K&J Magnetics. Their site has lots of info about magnets. We found buying a selection of samples taught us the most. We used magnets to affix our Take Your Shoes Off Sign to our steel apartment door, among other things. One of these days we’ll do a post on them.
