“Laundry” [Turotial]

So on top of working on our kitchen I decided to spruce up my ‘laundry room’. It really isn’t a laundry room for it is in my unfinished basement with concrete walls!!! But when life hands you lemons your supposed to make lemonade right? Right! So I first started off by making a “Laundry” sign!
What you will need:
-16in x 20in stretched canvas
- Paint: I used “Cool White” &" “Lamp Black” by Americana
-Cricut or a Silhouette machine
-Mod Podge
Steps:
FOOD 006
FOOD 013
FOOD 008

Turn the canvas horizontally before you lay your letters down.
FOOD 014 FOOD 015
FOOD 017
I then mod podged the whole board to keep the letters from coming up.
FOOD 019
Finished product:
FOOD 029

I added a few extra things as well:
FOOD 031
This is the “stain” organizer…whatever the stain is this will tell you how to get it out and what to use! I framed it and hung it on the wall under my “LAUNDRY DRUP YOUR DRAWS HERE” sign!
FOOD 032
I usually have two baskets on the wall but one is filed with laundry! That will get folded eventually! =)
FOOD 034
I got this table from Target. I tend to fold laundry on it or sometimes I even iron on it!
FOOD 035
My new “laundry" sign!
 FOOD 036
My laundry corner:
FOOD 028
I want to add a couple more shelves and such! But for now I think it is pretty cute!

XO
Enjoy!

Very cute and useful ways to store things and turn an area that could have been run-of-the-mill into something fun (well...as fun as laundry CAN be.) :)

Love the sign, very cute! I just made some laundry signs a few days ago and posted on my blog. My laundry room looks exactly like yours w/ the cement bricks (darn basements, lol) but yours is looking great! Inspiring me to spruce mine up even more!
