So I decided that these canvas storage bins (Target) needed a label.
I've had these in the boy's room for over a year now, and I'm quite impressed with their durability.
To label them I raided my craft closet and found these unfinished wood frames that I purchased at Ikea years ago.
I busted out some red paint and mixed it with water to give these frames a wash of color.
Iced coffee makes any project better.
While the frames were drying, I went inside and cut out some card stock.
Then I borrowed a blue crayon from the art center.
Then I hot glued some velcro I already had on hand to attach the frames to the front of each bin.
The velcro holds them in place really well and makes it easy for me to change the labels down the road if needed. Oh and I forgot to mention I wrapped the handle of each bin with some twine.
And now they look like this.
Yeah that's right, I liked it so I put a label on it. ;)
I love the look of the hand writing in crayon; it's so fun for a kids room. And thanks to the velcro, it's an easy change to make. The fronts of the Ikea frames are plastic not glass which protects the card stock but is still safe for a kids space.
It's always crazy to me how the smallest detail can make such a big impact.
The best part is now he has no excuse to stuff these bins full of random stuff. Do you see a label that says "Stinky Shinguards"? Yeah, me either.
Are you a label lover?
