This is the last of the laundry room series. I have three easy projects done for under $5!
First, see those bottles in the right corner? Painted. The bluish one was a glass chili sauce bottle with which I used latex paint. The white one is a plastic milk bottle with which I used acrylic. Just pour the paint in, slowly rotate the bottles so the paint coats the entire inside and rotate to rest on a different side every 15 minutes or so for the first hour and a half so the paint doesn't all slide down to one side. I planned to have a bigger collection, but am still on the search for shapes I love.
Total cost: FREE everything on hand
In this before pic, you can see the clear milk bottle as well as the sea foam thrift store tissue holder we used for our next project...
Fabric Softener Cover
There is something about a bright red box that does not excite me in my new room. The fabric softener sheets needed a new home. Enter the $1 tissue holder, a can of brown spray paint, Martha Stewart Arabesque stencil and white acrylic paint and bam. Lovely new home for my static fighting heroes.
Total Cost: $1 for tissue holder, everything else on hand
Hook Board with Buckets
I wanted a place to house all those odds and ends like buttons, coins and other pocket contents that inevitably end up strewn about the counter. Garage sale board+few coats of white acrylic paint+sanding edges+spray painted Valentine buckets from Target $ section=clutter elimination.
Total cost: $4 ($2 buckets, $2 board, everything else on hand)
Isn't this fun? Odds and ends are our friends.
