I wanted to do something with my old laundry tub -
Although it's outdated, it worked fine. I looked into replacing it but I just couldn't justify the cost of buying a new tub - they were a few hundred dollars! So, I decided to cover this one. I love the idea of using inexpensive drop cloths (here are some of my favorite drop cloth projects). I headed over to Home Depot and bought a 5 x 5 drop cloth for $8. I only needed to cover the front and right side and the small drop cloth would be perfect. I measured and cut - leaving the factory hem on the left and bottom (yea for not having to sew the hem!).
After it was cut, I sewed a strip of velcro to the back.
To keep the project easy, I used stitch witchery to attach red ribbon to the front. Then I attached the other side of the velcro to the tub (that side was peel and stick) and that was it!
I also gave the top of the tub a little update -
Yup, that's right - white spray paint!
Here's the cost breakdown -
Drop cloth - $8
Ribbon - $6
Velcro - $8
Stitch Witchery - on hand
Total - $22
This project was easy and inexpensive. And I have a much more updated laundry room!
