The laundry room is probably one of the most unorganized rooms in the house. It’s probably the least decorated as well. So, I have decided to focus my organizing efforts on the laundry. But, instead of actually doing any organizing, I spent my day creating a stencil to make this cute laundry sign! If you have a Cricut or Silhouette or other electronic cutter, you can make one, too!

Here’s what you need:
I found these pieces of wood from Home Depot. They come as strips that are about 1.5″ x 4′ and are around .50. They are a little rough, lightweight and perfect for a distressed sign. Cut 5 strips to about 16″ and 2 strips almost 8″.
Use pennies to created small even gaps between the strips.
Glue the smaller strips on top.
Paint the sign the color of your choice. While that is drying, use your electronic cutter to cut out a stencil. Weed away the excess vinyl and use transfer tape to apply your design to the wood. Paint over the stencil, you can see how I use vinyl stencils in this tutorial
. After the paint has dried, remove the vinyl stencil and sand lightly.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. What other types of laundry room decor do you have?
