Laundry Room Bin Organizers

Hello my crafty friends!

It's been a while since my last post. Just seems I can't get any crafting done while the kids are home for the summer. I did manage to do a quick home organizational project and thought I would share it with you all. Check out my new Laundry Room Bin Organizers!

A few years ago we installed this floating shelf above the counter in our laundry just so that the counter would stay clear of clutter when I needed the counter space for folding and ironing my laundry. For a while everyone in the house had a different coloured fabric box that sat on the shelf. With all the abuse they got, the boxes started falling apart and becoming an eye sore. Last week I found these great plastic bins at the Dollar Store. They were the perfect sized containers to store all the little seasonal accessories. The only problem I had was that they were all red and difficult to distinguish between whose bin was whose?

Vinyl to the rescue!


Here's a few pics of my process.

First, I cut out my vinyl words on the Silhouette Cameo. Then I weeded the negative space around the words. For those interested the font I used was called Kayleigh.


I didn't have any transfer paper but I did have some painters tape handy.
I placed the tape directly over the wording and pressed it just enough to lift the word off.


Below is what the wording should look like once removed from the paper backing.


I then centred the word as best as possible on the plastic bin, and voila!
Super quick and easy, and if you shop like me super cheap too!!!
(I actually bought my vinyl at the Dollar Store too, woohoo!)


Love how doing something so simple can make a space look and work better!


Hope that these Laundry Room Bin Organizers have inspired you to organize your own space with a little vinyl!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
