I’ve been working on my laundry room these past few weeks and planned on showing you my new gussied up laundry haven today, but the whole “impromptu puppy following us home” thing has thrown a wrench in my plan. Now the laundry room is also Buddy Cuddles main hang out when we aren’t home to monitor his love of chewing everything in sight.
So while I rework things to be more puppy friendly, I’ll at least give you a peak at the laundry room sign I painted this weekend.
You are either thinking I have the sense of humor of a 12 year old boy or you are laughing with me at this point :) (I hope you managed at least a little chuckle).
I saw this sign on Pinterest and it cracked me up.
I knew I had to make one for myself. Let’s face it, sometimes when I’m trying to get blueberry stains out of my brand new sweater, (anyone else have a kid that thinks throwing food is hilarious??) I need some comic relief…and a glass of wine, but that’s another post…
For my version I just painted a canvas with some leftover paint, and then much like I do my chalkboards – sketched out the words. I actually use chalk for this, if you make a mistake you can wipe it right off.
I tried to make the “Laundry” part of the sign look like the font on the inspiration sign, but for the rest I just used a stencil.
Buddy – not really helping with the photo shoot here!
I filled my words in with paint and outlined them in black sharpie marker to give a little more definition.
I’ll post some more projects from the laundry room/doggy pad this week, and hopefully (cross my fingers) reveal the finished project too.
And if you think I’m horribly immature – well, I am :)
I blame my kids, and the Mr. – the biggest kid of them all!
