Vinyl Lettering on Fabric Storage Bins

Pin It
Mr. A's big boy room is nearing completion!  I can't wait to show you the pictures!

We bought an awesome storage system for his room (more to come on that later!), and it can hold 6 large bins.

After looking all over (and I do mean allllll over) I found these bins at Lowe's:

I was digging that they were chocolate brown inside-

and I really liked the "linen look".  It added some needed texture.

I had been planning on numbering them-I love things that are numbered!

So, I grabbed some paint, and made some "stencils"  out of vinyl.

I FULLY planned on painting on numbers....and then I stuck a vinyl number 1 on the bin to see how the size looked.  Well, it stayed on really well.  

I liked the way it looked so much that I changed my mind about painting!  I just put on those vinyl numbers, and I think they look great!

And yes, those bins are all full of toys!  

I put on the vinyl about a week ago, and it shows no signs of coming off. 

It has withstood Mr. A so far. 

Plus, if I get tired of the way it looks, or want to use the bins somewhere else in the house, I can easily take of the vinyl!

Linking up to these parties!

  4. love this very cute idea. thanks for sharing this at my party!

  5. What a fab idea I have some vinyl that I keep meaning to try out with my circuit thanks for sharing Tina x http://scratchycatcrafter.blogspot.com

  6. These are simple and great...we love the use of vinyl and it's so easy to get it made at your local print or sign shop with your own files, too! Perfect for a personal logo.

  7. These are great!.. good work!..

  8. What a fabulous idea. I'm your newest follower. It would be great if you could stop by my blog Monday and add your project to The More The Merrier Link Party.


  9. I love vinyl...it's SO cool! Thanks for sharing :)


  10. Fantastic bins, love the numbers!

  11. The bins turned out way cool!! I haven been wanting to do something like that for a long time but just haven't found the right bins. I would love for you to come check me out over at onehotcrafty-mama.blogspot.com

  12. This looks so GOOD! Good Job! :)


  13. The bins look so upscale! I didn't think the vinyl would stick very well to fabric, so I've never given it a try, now I will.

  14. They looks great. I put vinyl on my canvas totes almost a year ago and they're still on. Thanks for linking to We're Organized Wednesday.

  15. what did you use to attach the vinyl? some type of glue? I want to make some foam blocks covered with fabric and then add some animals and words cut out with the cricut but i'm not sure if they're going to stick. any ideas would be great!

  16. I really liked the decor of the figure, especially if used to store kids toys, I guess Fabric Storage Bins become more useful, because can introduce numbers to children ..
    Thanks, I'll try it at home :)

  18. I know this post is YEARS old, but I'm wondering how the vinyl held up on the fabric bins as my daughter now wants to do this with her son's nursery. Thanks!
