Laundry room signs
Hello there~ Here are my Wash, Dry, and Fold signs I made. LET me take you on a TUTORIAL!
I started this project by painting the plaques “Vintage White” you can paint them any color you want. After they were painted and let to dry. I cut out letters from my cricut for a stencil. I used the platinum schoolbook cartridge regular font. Then I stenciled the letters down the center of the boards. TIP: use a flat bristle brush, it works best, and keep a papertowl near you to dab off to much paint.
then with a glaze~ little bit of water black paint, some brown, and white I went around the border of the entire plaques. I didn’t fully paint the borders in, so parts of the vintage white are still showing.
then with a dry brush and very settle paint on it, I went around the edges lightly brushing on some paint for more of a rustic look.
I used my super then cricut spatula to scrape off some of the black paint off the letter’s. (you can use a steak knife or something sharp.) I did this again for more of a worn beat up look. I don’t want it to look perfect. 😉
Then I took them out in my backyard and used that spray you see to give them all a nice glossy shine.
do you see the glossiness?
I found this DAMASK (i heart anything damask) ribbon at Walmart for I believe, $2.48! I had to have it though. I cut three lengths of ribbon to the exact same length and size. Then tied bows.
then I hot glued the ribbon to the back of the wood plaques.
HERE THEY ARE AGAIN~ all hung… PRETTY little maids in a row!
They WERE hung in my LAUNDRY ROOM… he, was that a NO BRAINER? HA!
I love them under my LAUNDRY sign. In case you are wondering, I did not make that LAUNDRY sign, I bought that sign some time ago. 😉 WANT TO SEE MORE OF MY LAUNDRY ROOM CLICK HERE!
