I have a new found love for labels after making a decision to decorate our home that still feels like a new home. After I published my playroom makeover update a few weeks ago, I got so many messages asking where I got the labels. So I thought, why not record a quick tutorial?

When I was redecorating my kid’s playroom, I found myself debating the best way to label them. Should I go bold or subtle, buy or print. I’m pretty happy with the decision to print out custom labels! And it was easy.

So that’s it! That’s my kid’s storage Canva labels in a nut shell. Now obviously they don’t always keep it this clean and organized in the right bin at all times, but it makes life a whole heck of a lot easier!

The little things really count and it makes a difference to be able to tell my daughter to go put all of her blocks in the block bin. Then she can go look and see which bin has the picture of blocks. Priceless. (for my sanity lol)

My hope is that someone can use this as inspiration! (and it can make your life easier too)
