Wood Signs for the Laundry Room{Imperfectly Polished}


Hello CSI Readers! I’m Jessie from Imperfectly Polished and I’m thrilled to be back here today sharing a fun, simple wood sign tutorial. When we made over our kitchen last summer and installed an apron front sink, we had to take off two faux drawer fronts that have since been collecting dust in a closet. I decided this challenge was the perfect time to pull them out and do something fun. We had been finishing up a room makeover in our laundry room and the countertop needed a little whimsical decor. Enter wood {faux drawer} sign! I started by taking the drawer fronts outside to prep for paint.

I used leftover paint from the cabinets we painted and installed in the laundry room {it’s called Elephant Skin by Behr}.

After the two coats dried, I decided to add a little design to the drawers. I grabbed a make-up applicator that I had on hand and used it as a stamp.

I dipped it into an accent color paint sample that I used on some laundry room art work and stamped it all over the boards.

And I had these fun square stamps.

Next, I took some sand paper and lightly sanded the whole board for a distressed look.

The last step was to stencil on some laundry roomish words.

And that’s it! A couple of fun, free simple signs to spruce up the laundry room.

I can’t wait to see what other fun wood projects are linked up this week!

Thanks again for having me and be sure to stop by and visit me at Imperfectly Polished!
