The beauty of being a Crafter for a living is that I have a well-stocked craft room. I was at Home Goods walking around and saw a cute little laundry room sign for $19.00. I didn’t want to spend twenty dollars on it so I came home, raided my craft room, and made one myself without spending any money. This DIY wooden laundry sign makes my already dreary garage laundry room a little more cheery.
I had this wooden plaque sitting in my craft room for a long time. I had a few ideas but kept pushing it aside. I finally broke it out for this project. You can kind these and most craft stores or large retailers like Walmart. You can also repurpose a cabinet door, repurpose old shelves, and the like.
I also had this pretty Seaside Villa Folk Art chalk paint. It’s a great color and perfect for a laundry room.
I painted the plaque a few coats. Then I laid out the word “laundry” with my stencils. I actually used three different sets of Martha Stewart stencils (and the tip of a pencil eraser for the period) for this.
I played around with what I wanted it to say based on the stencils I had. Underneath “laundry” I stenciled “wash”, “dry”, and “fold”. At the top I stenciled fifty cents.
That’s it! A cute, simple, and FREE sign to perk up my laundry room!
