Thumbnail spoiler:



I love the scent of this room freshener (cinnamon, mmm!), but I always hated the label. I don't know what sort of adhesive they used to affix it, but there was no way to remove it neatly. I used to just have the label side of the bottle face the wall, but it was just so plain.

I'm having company for dinner tonight, and while tidying the bathroom, I decided to do something about that bottle. I went through some of my vintage papers, and found an adorable illustration that fit perfectly. All I did was trim it to fit, and then tape it in the back with some washi tape. Easy peasy!


Here's the upgraded bottle in its new home. Why didn't I think of this years ago?

Such a great idea to make your own label for your decor. The bunny is cute like Zuki, and I like cinnamon also.  Smiley

Good thinking! You can even change it up when you want, like a "Poison" label for Halloween, etc.
