Home for my soap

I finally found it! I have been looking for something, anything to put my laundry soap in. I want to leave it out on the dryer for easy access. So here is what I found...

I know, I know, I can read. The fact that it says "Sugar" is a small problem. Very small. The real problem is what I spent for it....uummm....all I can say is it wasn't a thrifty find...it was $23.00. I know, but sometimes when you find the "Right" thing, you just have to. The red color was Perfect for my laundry, and the size was perfect too. Anyway, I decided I wanted to make a chalkboard sign for the front over the word sugar. Off to the garage, I found a small thin piece of wood and cut it to size with, who else, Mr. Big...

Then a little chalkboard paint...


Then I just cut a piece of scrapbook paper for a frame (of sorts) and glued it to the back with good old Elmers.


I then glued it right over the word "Sugar" on the can. Like so...

Filled it with my laundry soap...

And look how cute, and so handy right there where you can easily get to it. I love it.

Oh and while we are right there, you can see the other chalkboard I made to cover up the ugly breaker box. You know, we all have them, mine is right there, first thing you see when you walk in the room. I thought a chalkboard would be cute so a few years back I made this one...
My, I should raise my prices! So all together they don't look to bad, I am happy.

Have a great day!
