She transformed her tiny laundry room by adding a shelf and organizing storage bins for under $40! Check out the full laundry room makeover on katherinewandell.com

As a part of our laundry room makeover, we had to get organized! We really needed a place to store our cleaning cloths, detergent, potty training casualties and miscellaneous tools or junk that made their way into our laundry room.

I am sure from looking at the photo above you agree with me. It’s a little embarrassing to say our laundry room has looked this way since we moved in a year ago. We needed a way to organize all that junk! But we also had to do it on a budget. So I headed to our trusty old dollar tree and picked up some bins.

I used these blue bins I found, I bought three small ones that would fit on the shelf I planned to install. I bought 4 of the big ones for my top shelf. I also found these two beauties (pictured below) in my garage and my husband didn’t want them. So I decided to adopt them 🙂

The spray paint in the photos is what I used for the bins. I bought both at home depot, making sure they would bond to plastic. I used 3 cans of spray paint total for 9 bins. Before painting I washed them and let them dry.

Then I took them outside and put them on some cardboard and sprayed them on the outside and let them dry. After they were fully dry I did a second coat and let that dry. Last I flipped them and sprayed the outside, doing two coats as well.

After they were dry I made the labels for them. I measured out how big I wanted my labels to be and I used my silhouette software to draft it up. I ended up using brown craft paper envelopes because I didn’t have regular craft paper on hand.

I cut the brown craft paper with a stationary / paper cutter (scissors or the silhouette would work too). Then I cut a white frame with my silhouette to glue over the brown craft paper. After gluing those down I used my silhouette to cut out the vinyl decals for the labels.

Lucky for you I have made the work easy, and I made a free silhouette cut file for you to download! It has the three different size labels I used with the white frame and vinyl laundry words. All you have to do is grab some paper and vinyl and press Cut! Exciting right? You’ll find the free cut file at the end of this post.

Once the labels were made all that was left to do was put them on the bins. I highly recommend getting the labels laminated so they will last, since they can get wet in the laundry room. I didn’t do this but may in the near future. To attach these you could use tape (like I did) or hot glue as a more permanent fix.
