Laundry Room Makeover with Printables

Laundry Center Makeover

A while back I bought one of those three section laundry hampers thinking it would be the solution to my Laundry Room (or lack of Laundry Room) problems.  It provided a space for darks, lights & towels.  Unfortunately, it was consistently covered with items that didn't fall into those categories -- Handwash & Stain Removal.  So, I decided to remedy the problem with items I found at my local Dollar Tree and printables I made myself, which you can download at the bottom of this post.

Laundry Makeover How To

I bought 2 laundry baskets for $1/each and a pack of Incredible Hooks (J shaped), which I found are SO easy to use, also for $1.  I inserted 2 hooks into the wall per basket to keep it straight, then I placed the basket lip over the two hooks.  I attached the "Handwash" & "Remove Stain" printables with ribbon to match the room's color scheme.

For the "Laundry" sign, I took basic clothes pins that I had on hand and super glued a flat thumb tack on the top of the back wooden piece.  I printed "LAUNDRY" in the font and color I wanted (hint: cardstock will work best) and carefully cut it out.  I put the letters inside the clothes pins and pushed them into the wall in the location where I needed them.  My de-cluttering mini laundry makeover was complete!

  2. Handwash? Haha! Okay, I'm over it now. Despite my original giggle, I love this idea and your signs are adorable. Last month I hung up laundry letter similar to yours. Great minds think alike!
