My new setup is SO MUCH BETTER. I get excited each time I get to empty the lint trap into my new lint bin. I probably shouldn’t admit that, right?
It started with one of those little boxes people put real estate flyers in by the curb. I was planning to pick one up at the hardware store, but came across the sturdiest one I have ever seen on clearance. It has the perfect hangers on the back that make it easy to take on and off the wall to be emptied. I don’t think they are carried in the store anymore, but Amazon has the same one available
I went through my spray paint stash and found some plastic primer & a navy that would work with my color scheme. Isn’t it great when you have what you need on hand!
Once the container was all navy, I thought it was too boring. I painted the lid pink with craft paint & added a pretty label with silver vinyl (the same kind I used on Maddie’s bowl).
UPDATE: I have added these labels to the ETSY shop in silver, gold, black or white! Additional colors may be available upon request.
I’ve done a few loads of laundry and I’m probably enjoying the lint removal from the dryer process a little too much now.
It doesn’t stick off the wall very much, which helps it become more like a decoration vs a trash can stuck to the wall. Hmmm, now that I thought trash can, I have a vision of Oscar the Grouch popping out of my pretty pink lid. Creepy!
Lint stickers for YOUR bin now available on ETSY!!!
Can’t wait to see more? Here’s the full series!
