Personalizing My IKEA finds for the kitchen…

When you live 3 hours in any direction from the nearest IKEA, you make your husband stop anytime you’re close.

Dish Soap Dispenser and Rae Dun Inspired Planter

My Ikea purchase.

Since I didn’t have advance notice to prepare and my husband only has the patience to go around once. I just grabbed without real purpose.

I really wish I would have bought more, a return trip is needed.

Here are the plain Ikea finds before being personalized!

Not bad but I figured I could do better.

A couple cute little DIY projects were in order.

A “Rae Dunn” inspired planter.

I love working with vinyl. 

For my “Rae Dunn” inspired planter, I used my Silhouette Cameo 3* to create the words “be happy” out of Matte Black Removable Adhesive Vinyl* from StyletechCraft.   (*affiliate link)

I simply applied the words onto my planter using Vinyl Transfer Tape.

So easy to do.

Removable vinyl makes it easy to change out my words with the seasons.

Did you know that this vinyl will remove cleanly for up to two years?

This vinyl film is great for decorating a kid’s room, a classroom or just about anywhere you just need a temporary graphic.

And, with 27 colors available, it’s not hard to find the perfect color for whatever you can dream up!

I have dish soap issues.

I like to keep it handy, but, hate the way the regular sized plastic bottle looks on the counter.

I usually buy the smaller bottles. (just slightly better)

Solution… I picked up the cute soap dispenser during my last trip to IKEA and also personalized it with the Silhouette Cameo 3.

This time I created a small label using the matte black removable adhesive vinyl and words using matte white removable adhesive vinyl.

It looks so much better than plastic soap bottles.
