Laundry Room Cuteness...


So when I saw these beauties at Craft-o-maniac last week, I had some serious laundry room decor envy...now recently I have made a deal with myself that I would not buy anymore items/supplies etc. until I use at least 60% of the stash that I have {hoarded}...ahem collected, BUT I NEEDED THESE!!!!! So I began thinking about what I had that I could use.....



Last summer I bought a ton of these plain, pine frames from Ikea...they came in 2 packs and I don't remember the exact price but they were CHEAP-O....I bought them with no idea what I might do with them, but knew eventually I would use them....
Well that day finally came...I painted three of them white...inked them with my black ink pad. Cut some cute scrapbook paper to fit the 5x7 frames and inked it too. Then I printed out the words "wash, dry and fold" using the font "I WISH I WERE TALLER" from Kevin and Amanda on white cardstock...inking the edges here too....I used some left over fabric from my pottery barn knock off lamp project to hang them from... I adore the way they turned out!!!! Thanks so much for the idea Craft-o-maniac!!!!!

Thanks Jenn!!! You definitely did inspire me....I even cleaned the laundry room cabinets before making these just because I wanted them hanging in a clean room...hehehe! LaKeta

they're so cute, I like them. I'll try making them for my laundry room, my laundry room is tiny but they don't look like they take up much space.

HI lAkETA~ You have been featured on my blog! P.S. isn't it funny how when we get something new or in this case make something... we clean that room perfectly... or sometimes the house. HA! woman! Have a great night! Jenn

Kenzie said...

LaKeta said...

Maria~ My laundry room is tiny too...hanging them vertically definitely was a must for my little room!

These are REALLY cute! I've been looking for something fun to hang in our laundry room once we fix it up and I really like these. Thanks for showing them to us!

And about the rubber mat for the bath mat, I bet Hobby Lobby would have it. That place is huge and they seem to have everything! GL and I'd love to see how it comes out!

Those are adorable, I think they are even cuter than the originals! You seem to have the same problem/addiction I have... supplies, I buy them... all the time and I keep telling myself "no more until you use up some of what you have"!!! LOL!
