upcycled laundry sign
Over the weekend I finally finished a project that I've had in mind for awhile. It started with this $3.00 sign I found at TJ Maxx last year:
I liked the crackled look of it and its cheap price tag, but that's about it. I decided to upcycle it for my laundry room by doing something similar to this sign that I saw on Pinterest once. I painted it with yellow acrylic paint, then Mod Podged some scrapbook paper on top of that. After that I used some chipboard letter stickers I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby to spell out one of the truest statements that will ever be uttered in a laundry room.
And I truly believe it. I am 30 years old and I have a Masters degree, and I still cannot for the life of me fold one of those things. I've even watched instructional videos on YouTube and I still can't grasp it. I do a decent job with my son's crib sheets, but our queen-sized ones are almost impossible. I kind of just wing it and hope for the best. But I digress.
I like the quirky look of my sign, and it doesn't bother me too much that some of the letters are a little lopsided. It's got character, and that's all I ask for. It really pulls this corner of my laundry room together.
Total cost: Around $4 for the letter stickers. I had to get two packs to ensure I'd have enough letters to complete the project. Every thing else I had on hand. Yay!
So now I think the only other thing I really want for this room is a new ironing board cover. Haven't found anything I like yet. I might make one but I'm not sure I want to so we'll see!
