I have been searching a while for the perfect soap dispensers.  I looked at the big box stores and Amazon, but I couldn't find one that had the aesthetic I was going for.  That may seem so trivial, and frankly it is.  But sometimes I get a thought it my brain and it won't go away until I do something about it.  

So now that we've covered my crazy brain, I can get back to telling you about these soap dispensers. Things I wanted in a soap dispenser
  • a white ceramic base (not clear) 
  • a black pump
  • a surface I could put vinyl words on the front
  • small enough that they would fit in the holder I have in my bathroom.  

You will never believe where I found a soap dispenser I could do all of those things with. . .

at Dollar Tree.

Actually what I found at the dollar store was a white dispenser with a white pump and a black dispenser with a black pump.  But I loved the design with the flat sides and framed front.

I'm sure you can guess what I did.  I bought 2 of each and switched the white pump for the black pump.  Simply doing that, made this the perfect dispenser.  I actually bought 2 sets of these dispensers so I could make some for my bathroom and for the kitchen.

I quickly cut out words from permanent black vinyl with my Silhouette.   I didn't even use a fancy font; I just used a black font.

This is how the Farmhouse Soap and Lotion Dispensers turned out.  And do you know how much they cost?  These two cost $2 each.  And I still have 2 black dispensers with white pumps that I can use.

This is what our soap and lotion dispensers looked like before.  I mean they aren't terrible.  But I just didn't like the clear glass and the pumps didn't work great.

I filled the dispensers with hand soap and lotion and placed them into the ceramic dish (similar here) I already had.  I like to use a dish to hold soap because it looks nice and it collects drips.

The before situation at our sink wasn't great.  It just looks like a cluttered mess.

After looks so clean!  I like to keep my dispensers at the kitchen sink on a rectangle plate (similar here) that also holds a bamboo cleaning brush in a small condiment dish.

This is such a simple project that cost very little!  I am so happy with how these Dollar Store Farmhouse Soap and Lotion Dispensers turned out.
