Do you remember voting for the winning Laundry Room sign design on my Facebook page last week? Well if so, here the completed sign that I created for my Laundry Room makeover.
I tried to keep the overhaul as cheap as possible so I ended up creating a bunch of the artwork myself, including this little sign. Here’s how I created it…
I gathered my supplies:
- 16×20 inch artist board
- vinyl lettering (download FREE ARTWORK HERE: dirty clothes.eps)
- Country Grey Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
- clear & dark wax
- paint brush
First thing I did was center the vinyl lettering on the art board and stuck it in place. I carefully peeled the backing off to expose the white vinyl lettering (yeah, it’s hard to see… sorry).
Next I painted the entire sign board in a coat of Country Grey ASCP. Yep, right over the vinyl lettering too. Once it dried, I peeled up the vinyl lettering to reveal this…
Next I drilled two holes into the top of the sign for the ribbon.
And gave the whole sign a coat of dark and clear Annie Sloan wax. Tip: you will be able to scale down the dark wax if you apply the clear wax first.
I gave the edges some extra dark wax to have a grungy, dirty look.
I tied the ribbon through the holes and the sign is ready for hanging!
And here’s the sign in it’s final resting place! Yesterday I shared my entire Laundry Room makeover. You can see all the pics of the transformation here. Hope you enjoy!
