Laundry Tin and a Giveaway!

I finished my new laundry tin…


Not only does it look great, it also solves a problem.  I buy the large box of detergent from Costco for my laundry.  It doesn’t fit in my cupboard, or in the space under my cupboards.  It just sits there in the way, looking quite ugly.

My new tin started it’s life ugly too… it was an ammunition box.

I think I’ve improved its form and function.  Don’t you?

All it took was a little spray paint and some very cool vinyl lettering.

My lettering was inexpensive, at only a couple of dollars.  It was also VERY easy to apply to my tin.  The letters were on a strip already spaced perfectly.  I measured my tin, made little pencil marks as guides, removed the backing and applied the strip of letter. I used a Popsicle stick to make sure the vinyl adhered to my tin nicely and then peeled off the transfer tape.  It took just a few minutes and was super slick.

The inspiration for this project came from a detergent tin from Ballard Designs that sold for about $60.  My tin cost a fraction of that.

I got my vinyl lettering from Say It On The Wall and am excited they are sponsoring a $25 gift certificate giveaway here at Make it Do.

You could order this cool vinyl for your laundry room.

What about these awesome labels for organizing your pantry?  I love these.

You can also order something custom like I did.  There are lots of fonts and colors to choose from.   I simply gave Laura the dimensions of my tin and the font and coloring I wanted and she worked out the details.
