Our family bathroom also doubles as laundry room… Not the best solution, I tell ya! I love most things about my house, but this is one thing I r-e-a-l-l-y wish was different…:-P
I was going nuts over the piles of laundry in the bathroom, I swear it was breading when I turned my back on it…:-O So I decided to do something about it, and went out and purchased some nice big laundry baskets.
One basket for each of the types of laundry we do the most. Hopefully this will help the girls to sort their laundry directly into the right basket, and prevent the piles on the floor when I’m doing the laundry.. 🙂 Not the prettiest solution, but hopefully functional 😛
To decorate the baskets a little and add some vintage flair, I used some wonderful Fairy Soap graphics, I’ve been longing to use for a looong time:
The Fairy Soap graphics are all from the same little 1898 booklet. The booklet was made as a freebie, offered so people would buy more Fairy Soap. I want to buy Fairy Soap, when looking at those pictures…lol!!
I decided to print 2 images per page, but smaller than than full A4 size, since I wanted to laminate the pictures. They’ll be in a moist environment AND those laundry baskets will be handled a lot, so I wanted to make sure the graphics would be sturdy!
After laminating, I cut about 1cm around the image, and punched 2 holes in the top and 2 in the bottom, to thread the lace ribbon and tie the images to the baskets.

Here’s the individual baskets:
And some smaller baskets too:
