Do It Yourself Decorative Laundry Area Signs

Crafty Wooden Do It Yourself Signs


These do it yourself wooden signs were fun and easy to make for the laundry area in our home. I only needed a few supplies and used scrap wooden blocks left over from Mr.thisandthat's wood working.


These are the supplies I used to create these wooden signs. I used leftover white paint we had to paint the wooden blocks. 


I chose colors of ribbon that would match well with the colors on our washer/dryer set....


And the rug on the laundry area tile floor....


Since our laundry area is next to my husband's shop area, separated by a low wall, I chose a saying that I felt incorporated both areas. The tool stickers were purchased from AC Moore and stick right onto the painted wood with no problem. I used a Sharpie metallic paint marker for the writing. 


Get it?  Laundry Builds Over Time.....I think I'm so clever sometimes, Ha!  I thought the clothes pins looped through the ribbon on top added a nice touch, as well.


No words on the companion piece, just tools. 


These decorative wooden signs sit so nicely on the half wall between the laundry and shop area and add a colorful and festive look to the area!

Have you created your own do it yourself decorative signs for your home? They are quite popular right now and I have purchased several for around our home. This is my first foray into do it yourself wooden sign craftiness and I'm pretty pleased with the results! Hope you'll leave me a message and let me know what you think!

Until Next Time,
Debbie

Fantastic. I'm not creative at all and sometimes I can be very jealous of people who are!

This is really a great idea! I admit I never would have thought to make a homemade sign, but now that I see this I think, why not? I love doing craft projects but don't do them often (except I DO do scrapbooks regularly!). This is inspiring. Love how you found the perfect stickers to tie the two areas together, and the play on words IS very clever Debbie!! : ) I will have to look around the house and make something like this. I brought home all kinds of things from the beach, and now the creative juices are flowing!!

It's fun to do these projects. I feel very accomplished when I'm done, Karen. Hope you have fun making your sign with beach items! So you are a scrapbooker? I haven't gotten into that, but I always admire folks who do.

How cute do these look! I'm not very creative or good at DIY but I love your ideas. Thanks for sharing with us at #overthemoon link party. I've pinned and shared. Have a lovely week and see you at the next link party.

You had me laughing at the signs Debbie. It is so true that the laundry does pile up way too easily. Perhaps this will be a gentle reminder to everyone that it needs to get done! Pinning!
