Rub-a-dub-dub Three {Cloths} in a Tub!

The other day I found this cute little birdhouse and tin wash tub.  I needed something to put on a shelf in my bathroom, so I tied some jute around the washcloths and added a vinyl number to the tub.   

This is so in-expensive and simple to put together!


Wash Tub:  $1 from a dollar store.
Bird House:  Also from a dollar store.
Washcloths: On clearance for only .50 each. 
Vinyl number 3 and jute:  Let's say I spent fifty cents on them.
(The font is called Plantagenet Cherokee.)
 
Total Cost:  $4.00



I had a hard time deciding what to put on the front of the tub.  At one point I was going to put a bird... then a geometric pattern...and then finally decided on a three, because you know...Rub-a-dub-dub three {cloths} in a tub!   (Really I just like the look of the three.) 


Keep your eyes open at those dollar stores, you never know what little treasures you'll find!

***I was told by a couple of very reliable sources (my sisters) that it's been difficult to leave a comment on my blog lately.  I've changed the comments to a pop-up window and it seems to have fixed the problem.   I thought I'd let you know, in case any of you have been having problems as well.

Terrific! Where can you find the vinyl letters without spending an arm and a leg? I can't wait to go buy this!

In Reply to Anonymous: I was one of the very lucky ones to win a Silhouette last year (I was so shocked!) so I was able to cut the 3 myself. I've used scrapbooking stickers for other projects before and it's worked, or you could cut out a number and Mod Podge it on.

One day I had this crazy idea to try spray painting contact paper to see if it would work. Well... the paint went on, but it took a lot of it and took a VERY long time to dry, lol! I had to try it though and it actually kind of worked. :)
