I know we all don’t like to spend time doing laundry, but having your own DIY Laundry Room Sign hanging and Member’s Mark® Ultimate Clean laundry detergent to give you superior cleaning performance at only a fraction of the cost will make you smile at least πŸ˜‰

Here’s are the materials you’ll need to make your own DIY Laundry Room Sign:

  • Wood cut the size you want – Tip* Hardware stores will custom cut the boards for you, free of charge!
  • Paint (the colors to match your room for customization.) – You will just need less than 2 oz! Think of the colors you have left from painting rooms in your house or sample size cans at your local home improvement store.
  • Paint brushes – You can use any that you have around your house
  • Letter Stencils
  • Sand Paper – I used 320 grit
  • Paint Sealer
  • Air stapler

Here are the 7 Easy Steps to make your very own DIY Laundry Room Sign:

DIY Wood Laundry Room Sign

Step 1:  Paint the boards the color you want the lettering to be. I recommend doing this on newspaper, so you don’t get paint on anything important πŸ˜‰ I used Buttercream decor paint in Classic Red but any decor or chalk paint from your local arts and crafts store will work. Let the paint dry approximately 6 hours before applying the stick and peel letters.

Step 2:  Place your letters to read what you want your customized sign to say after the paint has dried. There are so many stencil fonts and sizes to choose from. Pick the ones you love! I chose the stick and peel letters. I found these were easier for this project. I bought these from Michael’s. They have a wide variety of stencils.

Step 3:  After the first coat has dried to the touch (approximately three hours), paint over with another color or colors. I painted over the letters in a Martha Stewart’s Vintage Decor paint in Parisian Blue. It took about three hours to dry and then I brushed on Soft Smoke Gray chalk paint by Buttercream over the blue to give it a little more dimension.

Step 4:  Carefully peel the letters off once the paint has dried to the touch. I waited three hours before peeling off the stickers.

Step 5:  Lightly sand and seal. I used a 320 grit sandpaper. The lower the number of the grit, the rougher the paper is and easier it will be to take off the paint, so be careful you don’t sand too hard. Brush off the sanded areas and seal with any type of sealer for protection. I used the Craft Smart Multi-surface Premium Matte Varnish. It takes about 15 minutes to dry.

Step 6:  Staple your boards together. I found these slender boards at my local home improvement store. Make sure you have slender pieces so it lays flat against the wall when hanging. I had my husband cut them to fit across all three boards and then I stapled them with the air stapler that’s connected to my air compressor. I used five staples per each section. So on each slender board, there are 15 staples each. I then cut another smaller piece and stapled it to the top (4 staples sufficed) to add my hook to hang the sign. You can get these hooks at your local hardware stores or in any hardware department.
