Witch's Medicine Cabinet for Halloween!

I have to admit I have no excuses for being AWOL for so long!!  And I am sorry about that.  I just haven't been inspired to do any artwork and I share most of my great finds for my antique booth on Facebook.  But, I want to share this project here for you.

I decided some time ago that I wanted to do a "Witch's Medicine Cabinet" for Halloween and for my booth.  This is the rusty tin cupboard that I bought last spring and, at the time, didn't know what I was going to do with it.
This is how I found this cupboard one day while shopping in Phoenix.  It was rusty, had mirrors in the doors and no knob.  I added the knob today.  A key has also been added.
 Here's the inside of the cabinet.  At this stage it isn't really a "Witch's Medicine Cabinet". 
While cleaning out scrapbooking papers and stickers I came across the papers here and the crow and tree branch stickers.  I cut them to size and attached the papers with paper tape and double sided tape.  It's getting there!

I've been working for a while on these various bottles to apply poison labels.  Then I added Halloween music pieces, a crow or three, a glittery skull, and a spider or two.  It's nearly finished.  Just need to add a couple more things to the shelves like -- skulls, boney hands, spiders and skeletons.
Here are the bottles on top of the cabinet.
Close up inside of the cabinet.  There are two old bottles (second and third from the left bottom) that are vintage prescription bottles with original handwritten prescription labels on them.  Nice!

I can just see a witch coming to this cabinet to figure out which poison to use on Halloween!  Hee, hee, hee!
