Projects & Recipes
We are moving the laundry room this summer, which means I have plenty of time to decorate the new room with stuff, like a new easy wall hanging. I tell the kids every Sunday before I start laundry, “bring me your dirty clothes, all of them or come next week you might be going to school naked”. After finding an old mounted picture in a closet from when our house was a school, I decided to recycle the whole sha-bang.
What you will need:
picture frame with glass
paint to cover the poster board with
sharpie marker – I used black
Doing the deed:
First paint one side of your poster board in a solid color. Next use masking tape to lay straight lines on your glass. I am not a good freehand lettering person so I laid my stencils out on the straight line of tape. Trace your letters, backward with a sharpie marker. Remove the tape and finish filling in your lettering with your sharpie. Wipe off all fingerprints from the glass and lay it in your frame, then your poster board and lastly the backing to your frame. My huge frame was old and yucky so I spray painted it a gloss silver. Get creative and add some other decorative items to the glass. Some leaves, flowers and swirls look lovely. Since it is my laundry room I didn’t get too creative, just keeping it simple. Have fun with it!
