I’ve finally made it. My first DIY post is online. It’s been on my list for quite a while now, but working on it took a little longer than I’ve actually expected. I guess you know this – simply “doing it” is easier said than done.
One of my core goals is to create tutorials that are super easy and affordable to realise. I browse through the internet, checking prices and customer reviews to make sure you get the best out of your money. All materials used are products that I’ve carefully selected and purchased. None of them are sent to me for advertising purposes.
PIMP MY LAUNDRY ROOM
We’ve all seen it: the typical drugstore detergent look, which for no means can be incorporated into the Scandinavian Interior Design. And when your opting for the plain and elegant Zara Home aesthetic, it comes at a really pricey cost. Here is a simple, reasonable and on top of it environmentally friendly solution: Creating stylish dispensers yourself and using refill-detergents.
With an unbeatable quality price ration I’ve decided to use the Medicine Bottles from Paracelsus-Versand, which can be purchased for as low as 2,40 € per bottle.
WHAT YOU NEED
- DIN A4 Paper Sheet
- Uhu Adhesive
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Step 1: Print out the labels. Please bare in mind to select the setting “Actual Size”, so that your printer throws out the right format.
Step 2: Use the grey line to cut out the labels.
Step 3: Apply the Uhu-Adhesive onto the labels and place them onto the previously cleaned medicine bottle.
If you aren’t happy with the positioning of the label, just unstick the paper. Print, cut out and apply again. Now you only need to fill the bottles with laundry detergent, fabric conditioner and linen water and voilá, you’re ready to decorate your laundry room. If you’re looking for a bit more, you can also add the poster “Laundry – Wash, Dry, Fold, Repeat” ,which can be purchased in my shop.
THE FINE TUNING
- When you fill in your bottles, use a funnel to make sure nothing spills out
- For a few cents more, you can also purchase a measuring cup for the bottle
- If you’d like to add the certain something to your dispenser, spray gold or copper color onto the bottle lid (I might do this as well).
