I’ve never liked the look of trash bags in bathroom waste baskets, so I don’t use them. But then every time I need to empty it I have to go downstairs and take one from my plastic grocery bag stash. Which is a pain. I started keeping some in the master bath, but it was mess of bags every time I opened the vanity door.
I found a great and pretty solution to keep all the bags neat and tidy on So Love That. Amberh used an empty oatmeal container and created an easy trash bag container out of it. I loved the idea so much, I decided to make one of my own. Actually one for each bathroom (I just gotta save up a few more containers).
Easy Trash Bag Dispenser
I used an empty raison container. But anything round or square with a lid will do, really.
I was having a little trouble hiding the orange on top, so I just painted a small border using some craft paint I had lying around. I cut and taped my craft paper (you could also use wrapping paper) to the container.
In order to match my french inspired bath accessories (you can see them here) I created a similar label for the trash bag dispenser on Picassa. All I did was download a royalty free *swirl graphic I found on stock.xchng into Picassa. And wrote right on it with the text tool. I brought it into Word, resized and printed it.
The first test run label just wasn’t doing it for me. It looked way to chaotic with the busy print underneath. FAIL
Voila, a super easy trash bag dispenser custom custom made for my bath.
