Interchangeable Faucet Words

Interchangeable Faucet Words: "

I have one of those cheap faucets from Moen. You know the kind that they put in a new house where you choose the option “stock” when they ask if you want upgraded faucets? If you go to Moen’s website and you click on bathroom faucets and you order them from the least expensive to the most expensive this is the winner for the cheapest faucet…lucky me! So I decided to get creative…


I mean, who wants the boring ole faucets?


The other day while perusing Pottery Barn I came across this pretty faucet.


You totally know where this is going, don’t you? At $449 for a new Pottery Barn Ashland Faucet I decided to take a pass.

But then I flipped off the plastic cap and took a small stick pin and removed the metal inserts for the hot and cold.



Then using my Silhouette machine I designed and cut out new labels for my faucet. Now if you don’t have a Silhouette machine you could just trace your caps and cut out the words. The way the caps are formed I don’t think they will get wet so I didn’t reinforce them or anything I just popped the cardstock circles in.


But then I started getting giddy, sort of slap happy and goofy. I thought, why stop there?




I crack myself up. I have 6 faucets in my house like this…oh the fun I will have! If you have the same craptastic faucets (no offense Moen) and a Silhouette machine and would like the file email me ( and I will send it to you.

P.S. Make sure you save the little metal inserts. If you ever move your new residents might not appreciate your humor. Smile

P.S.S Why is my mind totally in the gutter of all the things I could put on my husband’s faucet? Smile Smile
