Yay for Part 2 of our Goodwill Challenge! I (Erin) decided to go more seasonal this time around, and upcycle a decor item that would be perfect for celebrating the holidays and the long winter months. Amy and I found this little soap dispenser (it was on sale for a dollar!) and I knew immediately I wanted to give it a new home.
Seasonal Soap Dispenser
-Vinyl (or stickers!)
Before I show you what I did, here’s how it first looked:
It wasn’t too bad, but there was some definite wear and tear on the nozzle/pump, and the white just looked….plain.
Step 1: Spray paint the nozzle/pump. It’s AMAZING how much the appearance changed by just adding a quick coat of spray paint. I went with a glossy finish this time around.
Step 2: Design, cut, and apply vinyl to the soap dispenser base. I went with a “snow” theme because it could work now though March. You could easily do this with alphabet and snowflake stickers.
And seriously, that’s it. I spent 1 dollar on this project, because I already had the spray paint and vinyl on hand. It actually caught the eye of my husband, which, in this household, means something 😉 Goodwill has a lot of plain white pieces-from kitchenware to housewares, and they’re all just begging for a little added touch. Think of how many personalized seasonal items you could have, without spending a lot of money =)
