Mason Jar Laundry Soap Containers with DIY Chalkboard Tags

My laundry room is a messy room!  I have baskets for dirty clothes, baskets for clean clothes, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies and a few other random things in there that have no other home.  Our laundry room is a bit of a catch-all at the moment and it is driving me nuts!  It is on my list of places in my home to organize and something I definitely want to tackle while #springcleaning this year.

I had an idea I’ve been wanting to implement for a while, a stroke of genius that hit me somewhere between drifting off to sleep and dream-land one night.  And I knew that this would be the cutest way to organize my laundry supplies in my laundry room!  And I am so excited to finally put my idea into place!  Today, I am thrilled to show you my new cute Mason Jar Laundry Soap Containers with DIY Chalkboard Tags!

And of course you need to see what my laundry room soap containers looked like before.  A big mess.  It was functional…but it was not pretty.

So I went on a hunt for cute drink dispensers that weren’t too big or too pricey!  And after a bit of searching I found the cutest, mason jar style drink dispensers that were 1 gallon in size!  Perfect for laundry detergent!

You can purchase the same cute mason jar drink dispensers here.

I purchased 3 of these.  One each for my Laundry Detergent, my Color-Safe Clorox and my Fabric Softener.

The DIY Chalkboard Tags are really simple to create!
I found cute wooden shapes at Michael’s Craft Store for about 29-39 cents a piece.  I brought them home and drilled a small hole into the top of each of them.
After the hole was drilled, I painted them with Chalkboard Paint.  Be sure to follow the directions on cure times etc. when you use chalkboard paint.  I used Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint and after I had two coats of paint on, they needed to cure for 24 hours prior to use.  
Then you will prep your chalkboard surface by rubbing chalk all over it and then wiping it off!

I used a Chalk Marker to write on my labels, but a simple piece of chalk would work as well!

And with just a few minutes of my time and a few simple items, I turned a messy disorganized laundry room into a pretty space!!  Well, at least the laundry detergents are cute!

    Love, love, love! I have a laundry closet that I&#39;m trying to make a prettier space for me. I spend a lot of time looking inside of that closet and I want it to be something nice to look at! I was stuck at the laundry soap dispensers. Problem solved! Thanks!!! <br /><br />Shelly @ Dolen Diaries
